Stefano's passion for astronomy led him to re-propose and revisit these instruments. His astronomical clocks, in addition to perfectly indicating the time, the calendar, the seasons, the cardinal points and the wind rose are inimitable pieces of art that contain a highly sought-after aesthetic with an extremely natural and detailed functionality. Attention to detail makes them unique pieces of home decor with their heritage of ancient knowledge.
