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 virtus, or strength of character. Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome.
At Montegrappa, we strongly 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 indispensable function, even in today’s hurried, digitised society.
For this reason, we have created our new Fortuna collection, with an eye to those who still indulge in the pleasure of writing. It is our wish that these pens will engender the good luck that they deserve.
