    Information
Fortuna was the Goddess of Fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans. Fortuna’s identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to virtus, or strength of character. Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome. At Montegrappa, we strongly believe that luck is indubitably linked to virtue, while education is the foundation onto which an individual develops and nurtures his or her innate talents. We also believe that hand-writing is an essential element of the education process and an indispensable function, even in today’s hurried, digitised society. For this reason, we have created our new Fortuna collection, with an eye to those who still indulge in the pleasure of writing. It is our wish that these pens will engender the good luck that they deserve. Fortuna is available as a fountain pen (cartridge/converter fed), roller ball, twist-action ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil. It is offered exclusively in black resin, made personal by accents in a choice of three different trim finishes: rhodium, rose gold or ruthenium.
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.
