In 2021, Montblanc is celebrating a true visionary - Enzo Ferrari. Enzo Anselmo Giuseppe Maria Ferrari was born on February 20th 1898 in Modena, Italy. Enzo was both a motor racing driver and entrepreneur. Enzo was the iconic idea behind the legendary Scuderia Ferrari Grand Prix motor racing team and established a global automotive empire whose name has become synonymous with superb quality and a passion for speed. Enzo was widely known as "il Commendatore" or "il Drake". In his final years, he was often referred to as "l'Ingegnere" (the Engineer) or "il Grande Vecchio” (the Great Old Man).

Not only are all Montblanc writing instruments known for their expert craftsmanship but they’re all finished off with the iconic emblem, the Enzo Ferrari pen is no different.

What is one of the most distinctive features of Ferrari branding? The Prancing Horse. Ferrari once had a horse gifted to him, the horse was a symbol of luck. This was the beginning of Ferrari’s branding. Each Enzo Ferrari Great Characters writing instrument has been engraved with the Prancing Horse on the back of the cap.
