This great family contributed a significant amount towards art and architecture produced during the Renaissance. Some of the famous artists they helps included the Masaccio, Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello, and Leonardo da Vinci. They also helped science by supporting the famous scientist Galileo as he worked as a tutor for their children.
The Medici family has been a big inspiration of the Medic pen collection with many of the ideas drawn for the pen come from Florentine history.
The Visconti Medici Pen Collection
The Visconti Medici Pen Collection is made from Acrosilk. This material was developed by combining acrylic resin with silk fibers. The result is a stunning composite that is a glossy, luminescent wooden color. Acrosilk has been chosen as a tribute to the ancient luxury materials of the Medici mansions. The ring of the pen has also been chiseled with a symbol of the Medici family.
