    Information
The Ducale Murano Viola is the latest in this stunning series of pens from the famous North Eastern Italian pen makers.
The Ducale Murano celebrates the culture and art of Venice – La Serenissima. Available as fountain pen, ballpoint and rollerball, the Ducale Murano Viola celebrates the rich glass making tradition of Murano, one of the islands that formed Venice and the striking violet colour so much in evidence during Carnevale!
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.
