MONTEGRAPPA

Montegrappa is the oldest Italian manufacturer of fine writing instruments, and the company is still known today for its superb craftsmanship, creativity and style.

Montegrappa was founded just over a century ago in 1912 as “Manifattura pennini d’oro e penne stilografiche” or “Maker of gold nibs and fountain pens” in Bassano del Grappa, near Vicenza, in the North-East of Italy. Still today Montegrappa fountain pens are manufactured in the original factory on the bank of the river Brenta.

The Montegrappa company is owned by Aquila’s family and only recently in 2009 Jean Alesi, the ex F1 Ferrari driver, invested in the company and became a partner and a member of the board.

Montegrappa carries a strong passion for quality and innovative mechanization, which has made the company very successful since the 1930s when the fountain pens manufacturer was among the first to use celluloid and galalith to produce technically perfect pens.
