When we think about the word "Vertigo" we can only refer to the feeling that we have in front of great heights. Originally, however, this word was used especially to indicate the rotation of celestial bodies.
Galileo Galilei, for example, when writing about clouds, said that “they could be seen moving very fast, large and constant, carried by the earth's vertigo ".
It’s from this ancient and noble meaning that we have taken the inspiration to name this important floor standing globe, with a deep contemporary design: the free rotation of the sphere, in fact, wonderfully express the “vertigo” cited by the great Italian astronomer, father of the modern science.
From a circular base in stainless steel, rises an elegant and solid wooden structure that, by tracing soft and essential lines, sustains – without imprisoning – the globe.
The map presented in this globe, carefully updated by our geographers, is a contemporary map with avio colour. The lands of the map are in prefect chromatic harmony with the walnut structure.
