Sundials

Fornasa Marmi represents excellence in sundial construction. We offer a wide range of vertical, horizontal and equatorial sundials, combining different materials and customizing each realization.

The sundial's gnomon projects its shadow on the surface. The real time is obtained from the Equation which can be graphed and engraved on the dial.  A masterly example of gnomonic artistic application is the armillary sphere, made by combining two marble cogs.
