L'Astrari de Giovanni di Dondi (1380)

Xavier Jufre Garcia

Resum


The Astrarium built by Giovanni Di Dondi gives some information on the
position in the sky in a Ptolemaic solar system of all planets known at his time (Venus,
Mars, Saturn, Mercury, Jupiter, the moon and the sun). The Astrarium clock
was completed in 1380. In this work there, appears a computer reproduction in 3D
that reproduces its functioning.
