About Ernest Hemingway

Born at the very end of the 19th century, Ernest Miller Hemingway (21 July 1899, 2 July 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer and journalist who would define writing in the first half of the 20th century. With a terse, economical and understated style, he indelibly influenced the fiction writers who would follow in his wake. As if his magnificent prose was not enough, Hemingway also exemplified the writer who lived life to the fullest.

Having written so powerfully on the themes of love, war, wilderness and loss, Hemingway’s legacy to American literature is his style. After his reputation was established with the publication of The Sun Also Rises (1926), he remained a major figure in the literary world through works that included Death in the Afternoon (1932), Green Hills of Africa (1935), To Have and Have Not (1937), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) and Across the River and Into the Trees (1950).

Of particular significance in the history of Montegrappa is Hemingway having spent time during World War I in Bassano del Grappa at Villa Cà Erizzo, next to the pen manufactory. One of his greatest works, A Farewell to Arms (1929), was inspired by his relationship with a nurse during his time in Veneto and many of the descriptions of the area draw inspiration from the views of Bassano. Set during the Italian campaign, it is a first-person account of American Frederic Henry, serving as a Lieutenant in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army.



In 1953, Hemingway was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for The Old Man and the Sea, which was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to their awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. Of that novel, he said that it was “the best I can write ever for all of my life.” Yet another postscript has been added recently to this remarkable man’s life.

Following the 13 November 2015 terrorist incident in Paris, the deadliest attack it had seen since World War II, Hemingway’s posthumously- published memoirs of life in the city, A Moveable Feast, became a bestseller in France. Bookstore sales of the volume surged, and copies of the book became a common fixture among the flowers and candles in makeshift memorials created by Parisians across the city to honor victims of the attacks.




The Hemingway Pens

The Hemingway Collection is divided into four “chapters”: “The Soldier”, “The Writer”, “The Fisherman” and “The Traveller”. Each of these chapters of his life is embodied in a pen, offered in the three types, including fountain pen, roller and ballpoint. In keeping with the accoutrements of the era, the packaging itself has been inspired by the notebooks used by reporters during the First World War.

Each model in the four topics is a limited edition of 100 examples, totaling 300 pens for each subject. All pens in the series will be produced in celluloid with sterling silver trim. Embellishing the pocket clip, cap and barrel ends are symbols defined by the subject of the pen. The diamond-cut Sterling Silver trims are personalized with Hemingway’s signature around the cap, his initials and the Montegrappa logo. In addition to the silver editions, 10 examples of each of the three pen types, in each of the four chapters, are trimmed with 18k Gold. All invoke the spirit of the writer who single-handedly transformed modern writing.


The Writer

Lastly, comes The Writer, which is the essence of Hemingway. His writing style was unique and original, producing masterpieces for readers irrespective of their social position. He was straightforward, using deceptively simple sentences. The deception, represented in the motifs of the pen, is one of genius, the works being both easy to read and yet pregnant with ideas to be found between the lines. His technique involved the reader in a manner not previously experienced, his universality ensuring that everyone can feel what occurs in his books, allowing the reader to imagine himself or herself in the main role.

Turtle Brown is the color for The Writer, its woodiness suggesting the material from which paper is made. On the barrel ring, an Underwood typewriter features prominently below the dates 1951, when the author received his Pulitzer prize and 1954 when he was honored with the Nobel prize.




For the cap top, two ornaments create an art deco pattern to symbolize the classic’s clean and straight writing style. The clip is engraved with a fountain pen to show Hemingway’s early connection to Montegrappa, to Bassano and to remind us that, of course, it is the tool of writing.
