The Writers Edition Carlo Collodi is fantastically playful - a magical way of paying homage to the famous Italian author and his greatest work, "The Adventures of Pinocchio'. The work itself has inspired a design that combines the mystical elements of timeless history with modern writing culture, imbuing this writing instrument with a poetic soul.
The cap of the Montblanc Carlo Collodi Ballpoint PenPinocchio's Fairy-tale world unfolds on the champagne-tone gold-plated skeletonised cap, which shows the protagonist and his companions: the good fairy, the loyal cricket, the shady fox, the deceitful cat and the voracious whale all combine to give this writing instrument a playful yet noble look. A screw set into the clip symbolises the joints of the famous marionette while Collodi's signature completes the cop of this Limited Writers Edition.
