    Information
The Ducale brand appears for the first time in the 1930s to mark the high-end pens of the Elmo line. The name drew inspiration from the famous Doge’s Palace, one of the symbols of the city of Venice. Today, the collection origins are added a new prestigious connotation – Murano – as the antique glassmaking tradition. The new Ducale Murano collection consists of a fountain pen, a ballpoint and a rollerball, offered in the delicious pearlised sea shades of the resin with palladium trim. This model, the Mare, celebrates Venice's close links with the sea.
Montegrappa, the first Italian manufacturer of writing instruments, opened in Bassano del Grappa in 1912. A century of superb craftsmanship has passed for this Italian brand known around the world for its Italian creativity and style.

In the same historical building since 1912, Montegrappa has been a part of the lives of great men, and it has also witnessed moments of intense creativity and innovative breakthroughs. Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos, both Red Cross volunteer ambulance drivers during World War I, crossed the threshold of the original factory entrance on Via Cà Erizzo that was recently restored. That same entrance was among the first in Italy to see the arrival of celluloid, a precious material obtained from cotton that was already a protagonist of Montegrappa collections in the thirties.
