    Information
Ernest Hemingway was one of the most innovative and influential writers, reporters and novelists of the 20th century, one who wrote, coincidentally, with Montegrappa pens. The collection bearing his name consists of four exclusive editions; each of these chapters embodies a pen of its own, offered in the three types: fountain, rollerball and ballpoint.

The Soldier “, dedicated to his years as a young soldier in Italy, is made in Bamboo Black celluloid and precious metal engravings, commemorating the Great War and the author’s personal experience. Each model in the four topics is limited to 100 exclusive items per model. In addition to the Sterling Silver editions, 10 pens of each of type are trimmed with 18k solid Gold.
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.
