MONTEGRAPPA FORTUNA DIA DE MUERTOS BLUE ROLLERBALL ISFOLR

Viva México!

One of the most exciting and unusual festivals to be held anywhere in the world is Mexico’s famed Day of the Dead. Called ‘Día de Muertos’ in Spanish, the holiday is celebrated throughout Mexico, and by people of Mexican ancestry living abroad, especially the United States.

Acknowledged internationally in many other cultures, this multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and to remember those who have died.

Participation in this annual event help to support the spiritual journey of the departed.

In 2008, Día de Muertos was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

For the people of Mexico, it is a much-loved public holiday. As Mexico is one of the five countries with the largest Catholic populations, the holiday has evolved to being associated with to coincide with the Western Christian triduum of Allhallowtide: All Saints’ Eve, All Saints’ Day, and All Souls’ Day, corresponding to October 31, November 1 and November 2. So colorful, exciting, and distinctive is Día de Muertos that it has been used as a backdrop in many a film, most recently providing the setting for the opening of the 2015 James Bond film, Spectre.

The Día de Muertos Pen Collection

Starting with the shape of the modern classic pen, Fortuna, Montegrappa’s designers started with a black resin cap and barrel, adding to the cap deep-cut engravings filled in with pearlized enamels. The main image is a skull – the famous motif of the entire celebration – offered in a choice of colors that constitute the whole collection: pearl, blue and red! Moreover, each pen is unique: the enamel is entirely applied by hand.

Each color is applied separately and has to dry completely before a next color can be added.

Fortuna was the Goddess of Fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans. Fortuna’s identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to virtues or strength of character.

Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome.

At Montegrappa, we believe that luck is indubitably linked to virtue, while education is the foundation onto which an individual develops and nurtures his or her innate talents. We also believe that hand-writing is an essential element of the education process and an essential function, even in today’s hurried, digitized society.
