The Medici Astral’ collection is Visconti’s first ever collaboration with a US resin manufacturer. Two spectacular resins, each made in the USA, are hand turned at Visconti’s Florentine factory into the shape of their iconic ‘Medici’ model. To celebrate this new collaboration, and for the first time, Visconti have added their patented double reservoir power filling system, complete with ink window to the Medici.
As a tribute to one of the greatest dynasties in Italian history, Visconti designed the ‘Medici’. The family was a noble house that stood out for their political, financial, and cultural influence on the city of Florence. Most of all, the Medici family was known for their passionate contributions to the development of Humanism and the Italian Renaissance. The body of Visconti’s ‘Medici Astral’ features an eight-sided facet design, modeled after the Florentine baptistery, a religious place and symbol of the city's glorious past.
