Caption

An important part in our modern culture was played by geography, that gave a new vision of the world. In the past the globes were the only possibility to represent our earth in "correct" proportions. Vincenzo Coronelli was famous in the second half of 17th century for his atlases and globes. One of its masterpieces, just restored, is presented in the elegant entrance of Bergamo's public Library "Angelo Mai". A globe within a culture temple.

Globo Terracqueo di Vincenzo Coronelli

La geografia ha giocato una parte importante nella nostra cultura, dandoci una nuova visione del mondo. Nel passato i globi, i mappamondi, erano la sola possibilità di rappresentare la terra nelle corrette proporzioni. Vincenzo Coronelli divenne famoso nella seconda metà del 17° secolo per i suoi atlanti e i suoi globi. Uno dei suoi capolavori, appena restaurato, è collocato nell'elegante ingresso della Biblioteca Angelo Mai a Bergamo. Un Globo Terracqueo all'interno di un tempio della cultura.
