  • Montegrappa St.Moritz Limited Edition White Turf Solid 18K Gold Fountain Pen Montegrappa, Italy’s most revered manufacturer of fine writing implements, is pleased to announce that it will be creating a series of pens honouring the Swiss resort of St Moritz, coinciding with the 2010 St Moritz Arts Masters. The luxurious fountain pens and roller balls are apt representations of both the village itself and the aura that surrounds it. St. Moritz is like no other resort, for it has come to symbolise all that a Swiss destination should be: genteel and refined, exclusive yet welcoming. So great is the impact that St Moritz has had on the global consciousness, since it first welcomed skiers nearly 150 years ago, that it has grown to be both cinematic and literary ‘shorthand’ for luxurious getaways. As far back as 1934, Alfred Hitchcock used it for the opening scenes of The Man Who Knew Too Much, while it was cited exactly 30 years later in the James Bond film, Goldfinger and referred to in 1981’s For Your Eyes Only. Bond’s creator Ian Fleming clearly knew a good thing when he found it: locations near St Moritz also served as headquarters for the villain Blofeld in the novel, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Most romantically, singer-songwriter Peter Sarstedt listed St Moritz amongst the elite locales in his immortal ‘Where Do You Go To My Lovely’, its mere mention conveying haute monde elegance. But St Moritz supports much more than skiing, golf and other leisure pursuits. Every year, this town welcomes the arts, celebrated with exhibitions, seminars, walks and other attractions. The 2010 St Moritz Arts Masters is the third occasion the event has been held, taking place from 27 August to 5 September. A gathering of artists and collectors, experts and critics, it is a rare opportunity for the public to savour the art world in all of its aspects. It is fitting, then, that the representation of the event be both a tool an artist might use – a pen – and an objet d’art embellished with visual representations of St Moritz itself. To decorate the barrels, Montegrappa’s designers have chosen three historic posters to illustrate the scope of St Moritz’s attractions, each image hand-painted by artist Lorena Straffi. The pens are fashioned from celluloid, a costly material made from cotton fibre mixed with natural pigments and mother-of-pearl, and are further adorned with either sterling silver or 18K gold.
