Capturing shadows

A slow journey to discover the secrets of our artistic sundials

WHAT TO EXPECT/ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

An expert guide will take you on a walk through Monclassico and Presson to explain all there is to know about the 50 artistic sundials that have been painted on the homes of these hamlets: the only place like this in all of Europe, a museum under the sky!

INTERESTING FACTS/INFO

You’ll see a rare example of a “camera obscura” meridian, also called a noon mark: There are only 5 like this in all of Italy. A unique interactive experience.

Special workshops are organized for kids.

WHO ARE WE

We are the "Le Meridiane" Cultural Association. We are a group of art and history enthusiasts and experts on the science behind ancient sundials that created this local association twenty years ago.
