Suprema Torricelli gold leaf is an authentic mechanical jewel. This splendid pen is in fact equipped with the "Torricelli" filling system, named after the Florentine physicist Evangelista Torricelli who, in1644 conceived the principle ofbarometer, building what is now calledTorricelli tube and identifying the "Torricellian void".

 

In fact, Evangelista Torricelli demonstrated that a vacuum can exist in nature and that air has weight, thus putting an end to the age-old philosophical discussions onhorror vacui.

 

In the Suprema Torricelli gold leaf the air contained inside the tank chamber is expelled by activating an internal piston through the supply channels. This maneuver creates a virtually empty environment and allows the ink, through a final recompression of the tank, to completely fill the transparent body.
