Museum

The Museum of Perspective; consist of a collection of early perspective instruments and related visual methods. 

The museum consists also of a collection of models of the most important gnomonic and astronomical devices, each of which with accompanying charts on which are explained both the projection methods they involve and the point of view they assure. 

All gnomonic devices are effectively alternative means of systematically letting a plane intersect a shadow. Since some methods are as simple as putting a stick in the ground and other involve complex instruments, the history of such instruments arranged in terms of alternative projection techniques, brings to light another strand of the projection plane experiments prior to those of linear perspective. 

Similarly, the planisphere and astrolabe begin from the premise that the equator is seen as a projection by someone standing at the south pole. The growing complexity of these techniques should also help us to understand better the history of man’s precise relations between viewing, point, projection plane and object beyond.
