Montegrappa, the first Italian manufacturer of writing instruments, opened in Bassano Del Grappa in 1912. One hundred years of superb craftsmanship later, this brand is known around the world for its Italian creativity and style. Today, based in the same historical building since 1912, both the Montegrappa mechanical pencil and pens blend traditional craftsmanship with modern design techniques to remain a world ambassador for Italian style and elegance, featured in pens distributed in nearly 60 countries.
2012 marked Montegrappa’s centenary of manufacturing its unique pens. Italianate design is at the heart of Montegrappa’s 100 year tradition of excellence in writing. It defines the brand philosophy, its attitudes and its style.
