Sirio is the brightest star of the celestial vault and it's not a coincidence if we have chosen this name for this great floor-standing globe. It is in fact an extremely elegant object, able to attract - and support - all eyes on itself, with its refined structure and with its extremely detailed map.
The turned columns, which seem to build a small temple around the globe, are realised of beech wood. Another type of wood has been instead used to realize the shelves: it's the sought-after Tanganyika walnut, which grows in the African equatorial belt, and therefore in the humid forests of the Ivory Coast, of Kenya. To support the globe and to allow an easy disocvery of its map there is a solid aluminium ring, which can be slided at will. The imposing solid wooden base, finally, gives maximum stability and a perfect balance to this big globe: the diameter of the sphere is in fact 60 centimeters. A modern and extremely elegant globe.
Countries, capitals, cities, rivers, lakes and seas: our team of cartographers has punctually updated the world map for this our new globe to allow you to study better your travels in the most relaxing possible way. The coloring used for this globe is the classic one of political maps, with the oceans of different shades of blue and the various chromatically distinct countries.
