"Parola" is Italian for "word" as appropriate a name for the "entry level" pen as Montegrappa could devise. Parola pays homage to the importance of the word. The Beatles sang, "Spread the word, and you'll be free". And thanks to both the spoken and the written word, mankind has evolved, progressing into a more refined and educated society. The word is to communication what air is to life: the core element. And Parola celebrates life.
