EuropeanConsumerChoicePrize 2011 - first prize
The telescope is inspired by Galileo’s first telescope made in 1609: it has the same focal length (1 meter) and the same wooden material. This object, combining past and present, has the aim of “updating” the ancient instrument in its modern use through a contemporary design and through the product’s modern optical technology. This object was developed in Florence, where Galileo pointed for the first time his telescope towards the sky at the end of 1609. Honorable Mention - XXII Compasso d'Oro ADI Prize - 2011
