MONTEGRAPPA MANUFACTURE SINCE 1912 STANDS IN THE SAME HISTORIC BUILDING ON THE BANK OF THE RIVER BRENTA, IN ONE OF THE MOST PICTURESQUE AREAS OF THE HISTORIC TOWN OF BASSANO DEL GRAPPA IN THE PROSPEROUS NORTH-EASTERN PART OF ITALY. THIS ITALIAN HERITAGE IS AN IMPORTANT VALUE FOR A BRAND THAT IS THE FIRST ITALIAN PEN MANUFACTURER: IT IS HIS TRADITION, HIS LEGACY. SINCE 1912 MONTEGRAPPA PENS EMBODY THE ITALIAN FLAIR.

FOUNDED AS A "MANUFACTURER OF GOLD NIBS AND FOUNTAIN PENS", THE BASSANO FACTORY FOUND ITSELF IN A KEY POSITION DURING WORLD WAR I. AMONG THE MANY SOLDIERS WHO USED MONTEGRAPPA PENS (THEN KNOWN AS ELMO) TO WRITE LETTERS HOME, THERE WERE ALSO TWO CELEBRATED AMERICAN WRITERS, ERNEST HEMINGWAY AND JOHN DOS PASSOS, WHO WERE BOTH VOLUNTEER AMBULANCE DRIVERS AT THE FRONT.

PLEASE SELECT WITH CARE - USED FOUNTAIN PENS CANNOT BE RETURNED
