Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing writing implements in the same historic building on the bank of the River Brenta. The river winds through one of the most picturesque areas in the prosperous North-Eastern part of Italy, through the historic town of Bassano del Grappa. Its Italian heritage is an important component of the company’s persona: that it is the first Italian pen manufacturer. “Italian-ness” is at the heart of Montegrappa tradition. It guides the company’s philosophy.
