The famous Bovolo staircase was later added to the palace and named for its snail shell shape.

In Venetian dialect the snails are called bovoletti for this reason the Venetians called it scala del bovolo.

Bortoletti art masters inspired by this story designed the Contarini ballpoint pen project.

Venice’s centuries-old symbols and customs meet modern taste and find expression in the Contarini bronze pen.

It is from the careful search for symbols borne of collective memory that historical and modern design come together to give a pen rich in history and personality.

Historic and modern design come together in this elegant ballpoint pen.

The Bortoletti brothers inherited the secret of bronze casting from their father, refining their lost-wax microcasting processes to achieve the highest degree of finish.

While white bronze cannot be called a precious metal, it is a respectable material that has also always been used in art.

And an alloy composed of 80 parts copper and 20 parts zinc, it provides high breaking strength and is not subject to oxidation.

White bronze lends itself to the finest artistic workmanship; during the finishing process it is patinated and chiseled by hand.
