Explosive volcanic eruptions and the obsidian formed from the cooling lava prompted early humans to challenge nature, trying to forge tools to hunt and protect themselves for their own survival. With the same creative momentum, Visconti gave modern humans a writing instrument crafted from the same primitive volcanic rock. Hence, a great ancient tool that enabled humans to write their history was turned into a real iconic piece with a perfectly balanced design. A combination of basaltic lava from Mount Etna, catalyzed with nylon resin according to a secret process, generates an unbreakable, hygroscopic, velvet-like compound, achieving a revolutionary result for the world of writing instruments.

Innovation and tradition have always been the core values underlying the Visconti mindset. An iconic piece since it was launched, the Homo Sapiens pen delivers a message of continuous evolution: the Homo Sapiens Evolution collection breaks traditional design rules, introducing a black PVD stainless steel cap and blind cap, in harmonious contrast with a lava rock body. A key pillar of knowledge, geometry is emphasized by a curved engraved pattern on the metal parts, celebrating an intellectual journey that began more than 2,000 years ago and still holds a great fascination for humanity.
