About the Caduceus Symbol

Fortuna Caduceus takes its name from the symbol understood globally to represent the medical profession, after its adoption by the U.S. Medical Corps. It is often confused with the similar Rod of Asclepius, an ancient Greek god associated with healing and medicine, which features a serpent coiled around a staff. The Caduceus is also an aesthetic totem thanks to its actual shape and structure. It is formed of a rod embraced by two intertwined snakes and wings, and the symbolism of these two components has inspired many interpretations, especially the notion of resurrection and healing, as symbolised by snakes shedding their skins, while the wings represent the “lift” when one is healed. Caduceus is also the staff carried by Hermes, the messenger of the gods, serving as a symbol of peace, with the wings representing his speed. Among ancient Greeks and Romans, it became the badge of heralds and ambassadors, signifying their inviolability.

About Montegrappa

Montegrappa was founded under the slogan "Maker of gold nibs and fountain pens" in 1912. Its products are still manufactured in the original factory on the river Brenta, in Bassano del Grappa - near Vicenza, in the North-East of Italy. Montegrappa takes its name from another industry that lies within a stone’s throw of the Montegrappa factory - the Grappa industry. Grappa is a local alcoholic beverage that has never been more popular, finding new friends in bars and saloons from Mumbai to Manhattan to Macau. Montegrappa makes Regular Edition; Limited Edition; and Special Edition Pens. Pens come in three forms; rollerball; ballpoint or fountain. In addition to these forms, Montegrappa makes pens out of various precious materials; silver and gold are the most common used material. Montegrappa also made a series of Ferrari Pens; a series of Elvis Pens; a DC Comics series; and a golf edition.
