Description

The Italian manufacturer Visconti was the maker of the very first luxury fountain pens I ever bought. From the moment I saw their flashy materials, unusual designs, and luxurious feel, I was entranced. It started with the Van Gogh Starry Night. Followed by the Dali. Then the Homo Sapiens Bronze Age. I spent ages looking for a Visconti Opera Elements Water, but never found one. I instead got the Opera Club Cherry Juice. Some retailers sent me the Saturno, Millennium Arc, and Opera Metal to review. I got the Divina Elegance. Then the Divina Metropolitan. And lastly, the pen in this review, the Divina Proporzione.

The Proporzione was the first of Visconti’s Divina series, released in 2007. A pentagonal pen with swirling facets lined by inlaid sterling silver, the Proporzione was built around the principles of the Divine Proportion of 1:1.618. (Also known as the golden ratio). It’s a mathematical representation of proportion that is very pleasing to our aesthetic sense and is found all over the place in nature.

The cap features the MyVisconti medallion in the top, and the very standard Visconti hinged “bridge” clip. (Love it or hate it.) At the other end of the pen is the access to the pen’s “Push and Pull Touchdown” filling system, on which the pen’s limited edition number (xxxx of 1618) is engraved. Unlike later Divinas, the Proporzione has an ink window that is visible even when the pen is capped
