Visconti: The Knight Templars
The Order, founded around the year 1118, ows its name to the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic sanctuary located in the whereabouts of the Biblical Temple of Jerusalem; the Templars used to call this Dome ‘‘Templum Domini’’
The Knight Templars are remembered for the economic and cultural development they had brought throughout Europe and they are still cited today as shining example of honesty utter devotion and faithfulness.
In the common iconography the Knight Templars represent the right thing that can only be destroyed by mere economical interests. This fountain pen has been inspired by the legendary white robe with the red cross the Knight Templars used to wear.
Since they were a military order the metal trims of the pen were inspired by the iron and the steel and have been duly aged.
