The dynasty that shaped Florence's history
The Medici family, hailing from Florence, revolutionised European banking in the 14th century, amassing wealth that underpinned their political dominance and their extraordinary patronage of the arts. Their financial and political acumen fuelled the Renaissance, a golden age of creativity and intellectual growth.
As patrons, they championed artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, commissioning countless works now housed in globally renowned sites like the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace. Their legacy in the arts is a testament to their dedication to cultural prosperity.
Their influence reached into the Catholic Church, giving rise to four Medici popes and extending their reach across Europe. Additionally, Catherine de' Medici, through her marriage to King Henry II, wielded significant influence over the French court, demonstrating the family's international sway.
Their commitment to scientific advancement, as seen in their sponsorship of Galileo Galilei, paired with their artistic patronage, makes the Medici name synonymous with innovation, excellence, and an enduring legacy.

Hi, The pen was delivered yesterday as planned and it is as beautiful as in the pictures (or possibly more). Thanks a lot!
Fast international ship. Good seller, thank you
Everything in the highest culture. Fast shipping. Item as described. Great contact. I RECOMMEND ! Thank you. Greetings.
Very beautiful, solid and can be posted and become a very large pen. The 18K M nib is with some good flex and nice flow of ink. The nib is not as smooth as Visconti and Montegrappa pens but provide more feedback to me, just like writing with 4B pencil. The pen can house a Bock 250 nib assembly without a problem. I shall return for more of the Ancora pens, stunning!
Can't believe I got my pens so fast. Well packed & in great shape. Beautiful pens!!! Great people to do business with.
Pens with history and incredible quality. I finally found a place where I can order gifts for my loved ones for every taste! Thank you!
