Montegrappa Limited Edition Dante Alighieri Purgatorio Gold Rollerball Pen
PATH TO REDEMPTION
After Inferno, Montegrappa Limited Edition Dante Alighieri Purgatorio Gold Rollerball Pen, the Divine Comedy resumes at the foot of Mount Purgatory, where only keys of gold and silver can allow passage to its seven terraces. Here, penitence provides a path to love, redemption, and divine grace. Glorious jeweler’s castings trace Dante’s ascent as, one by one, he is rid of his sins. At a summit clad in cloisonné, Earthly Paradise and the cleansing waters of the river Lethe await.
Following Dante’s journey through darkness and depravity, hope returns with Purgatorio and a master-crafted design that inverts the logic of Inferno. This time, the story begins at the blind cap, where he is marked with seven symbols of Peccatum (sin). As Dante ascends each terrace, an angel’s wing brushes a letter P from his forehead – depicted in fine relief beneath hand-enameled detailing.
