Visconti shook the fountain pen field with a breakthrough both in terms of design and materials when the original Homo Sapiens Bronze was launched. Carved from pure basaltic lava and enriched with resin materials, the pen enveloped the strength of ancient powers, juxtaposing its volcanic nature to a soft and smooth writing experience thanks to its Dreamtouch 23Kt Palladium nib. This award-winning writing tool was followed by the Homo Sapiens Steel Age which in turn issued steel trims.

Five years has passed since then, still the Homo Sapiens is one of Visconti's very signatures. Virtually unbreakable and naturally hygroscopic.  The fountain is available in both midi (piston fill) and maxi (power filler) sizes, both enhanced with Visconti's 23kt Palladium Dreamtouch nib.

Lava has some incredible qualities making it the perfect material for writing instruments.
* Virtually unbreakable: high degree of resilience
* Flame-proof: heat resistance to heat over 100°C
* Slightly hygroscopic: absorbs hand sweat during use
* Dense to the touch: comfortable to grip and relaxing to write with
