Desiderio represents deeply-felt desire, the longing a man or a woman has for the target or their ardour. It may be the need to perform a particular function or role, or having a wish come true. It is a most powerful force, one that fuels great art, heroic achievement, herculean effort. But it is also personal, an inner drive that craves fulfilment or satisfaction. When it flows from the mind of the musician, it can transcribe the notes to an epic symphony or a plaintive ballad. For another, it will yield a love letter that will scorch the page, or a poem that will wrench a response from the heart of the reader.
Desiderio writing instruments are made in pearlised bi-colour resin, including this red and black version, with trim in sterling silver and a filigree-cut 18kt gold nib.
No two are alike, just as all desires are unique, for the material that forms each cap and body possesses its own swirling pattern.
Montegrappa’s signature octagon accents the top, while the rolling ball at the end of the pocket clip and a thin line around the cap are coloured to contrast with the body. Upon removing the cap, the second colour is also revealed at the writing end of the pen.
