The genius of eclectic artist Leonardo da Vinci went down in history like few others, becoming a real Italian legend, born near Florence and celebrated worldwide, 500 years have passed since he died on 2 May , 1519, and it was unavoidable for Visconti to celebrate him for his massive impact on popular culture.
Painter, architect, engineer, scientist: Leonardo was many things, and Visconti picked his engineering talent to gather inspiration and design the Machina collection. Hand-crafted in three different limited-edition finishes – solid silver (288 pieces), vermeil (288 pieces) and solid pink gold 18Kt (38 pieces) – the resin cap and barrel reveal the technical drawings of some of Leonardo's revolutionary machines, collected in the famous Codex Atlanticus. The use of the Scrimshaw technique and a colored pigment evoke Da Vinci's beloved red chalk drawing art, showing once again the remarkable techinical and artistic expertise of Visconti craftsmen.
