"Scipione Borghese is considered one of the greatest and most influential patrons of Baroque art in Rome. His rapid rise in the Catholic Church brought with it great financial rewards, which allowed him to invest in art on an impressive scale. Scipione Caffarelli was 28 years old in 1605 when his life was changed by a stroke of good fortune. His uncle, Camillo Borghese, was elected to the papacy as Pope Paul V. and the door to power and influence opened. The Pope made his nephew a cardinal and head of the Vatican government and allowed him to adopt the aristocratic Borghese name.

Scipione was empowered with the finances of both the papacy and the Borghese family, thus becoming one of the wealthiest men of his time. His enormous fortune was channeled into art. he generously promoted the fine arts and brought together one of the most valuable and significant art collections in Europe. To honour Scipione Caffarelli Borghese, Montblanc created the Patron of Art Homage to Scipione Borghese Limited Edition 89.

Cardinal Scipione Borghese was particularly supportive of two young artists: the sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini and the painter Caravaggio. Some of their early masterpieces were among the works he displayed in the renowned Borghese Gallery, where opulent rooms were filled with art and fine furniture. Collecting art treasures was a fashionable occupation for many leading personages of the time. They often possessed extravagant cabinets of curiosities, reflecting their power and position. The exotic materials used to create these cabinets and the exquisite objects within them, provided inspiration for the design of the Patrons of Art Homage to Scipione Borghese Limited Edition 89."
