Montblanc Unveils The Limited Edition Pavarotti – A Pen Worthy of Its Namesake

In memory of the late opera star, Montblanc has unveiled a Limited Edition Fountain Pen in his honor. Every detail on this magnificent writing instrument reminds us of Pavarotti’s legacy and talent. As per opera tradition, before each show Pavarotti would search for a bent nail to keep in his pocket as a good luck charm. This is externalized on the 750 solid gold nib in a delicate engraving. The black and white lacquer of the pen is a nod to his distinctive black tuxedo and white bow-tie. The cone is lacquered in red with intricate turquoise cabochon flowers reminding us of the Hawaiian floral shirts the iconic singer loved wearing off stage. As the last tribute to Pavarotti’s signature ensemble, the gold-plated clip wraps effortlessly around the cap just like how he draped his trademark scarf.

Why did Montblanc find Pavarotti worthy of a commemorative fine writing instrument? In 1935, in a small farming village in Northern Italy, a son named Luciano was born to a baker and a cigar factory worker. Like most other boys at the time, he fell in love with what we call soccer, known worldwide as football. Little Luciano saw a promising future ahead of himself as a goalkeeper and was ready to pursue that dream. Upon graduation, his mother convinced him to leave behind his foolish wishes to become a goalkeeper in pursuit of a career in teaching. For two years, Luciano taught school lessons but lacked passion and interest in the field. In 1954, at the young age of 19, Luciano began his formal studies in music. Little did he know he would grow up to become the most commercially successful tenor of all time.

Pavarotti enjoyed a long, prosperous and satisfying career. Like Pavarotti’s style, his career and ability were unparalleled. The five gold-plated rings on the cap symbolize the five operas which propelled Pavarotti into international stardom: “Turandot,” “La Bohème,” “Rigoletto,” “Un ballo in maschera,” and “L ʾelisir dʾamore.” The fine engravings on the cap’s ring transport us back to Italy’s “Teatro Comunale Luciano Pavarotti.” Similar to Pavarotti’s unique and incredible sound and lifestyle, this pen is a remarkable achievement from a standout brand.
