Polvere di Tempo was born in 1989, it was the fruit of my passion for craftsmanship and the construction of ancient time measuring instruments.
It all started when I visited the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milán, where there is a wide array of sundials. This event altered my life to the point that I gave up my career in architecture, in favour of the construction of these curious instruments.
In the beginning it was hard to find the information, which I obtained through a research and by consulting “gnomistas atrófilos”. The first instruments I produced were the portable sundials, then I discovered the charm of the sundials, which I started producing in all shapes and sizes.
In my workshop, I also produce compasses, globes, geographic maps and other objects, always in the subject of time.
Please feel welcome to come and visit me.
