FORMELLO and his MERIDIAN SUNDIAL

FORMELLO AND HIS MERIDIAN SUNDIAL, illustration in M. Catamo LA MERIDIANA DI FORMELLO

While in Italy there are about 13.000┬ásundials of many kinds (mostly on walls), sundials such as the one in Formello are relatively rare. In Lazio we just have two: one in Santa Maria degli Angeli, in Rome, and now the recently restored one in Formello’s ┬áSan Lorenzo Martire’s Church.

An historical and scientific essai.
