  • About the book

The Shape of Time offers an intense reflection on man's relationship with time, from Humanism to the threshold of the Scientific Revolution.
The multidisciplinary research - carried out in eight essays by Umberto Eco, Claudia Cieri Via, Emilio Russo, Cristiano Zanetti, Alberto Lualdi, Francesco Ceretti and Lavinia Galli - relates the long evolution of the iconography of Time in Italian art with the progressive technological advancement in its measurement, through the points of view of science, philosophy, literature and art.

The book accompanies the exhibition curated by Lavinia Galli at the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, which opens with the Florentine and Venetian Renaissance and arrives in Bernini's Baroque Rome. The fulcrum of the exhibition is a series of precious 17th-century Italian nocturnal clocks, invented by the Campani brothers for Pope Alexander VII Chigi, whose dials are painted with allegories of Time by famous artists such as Giovanni Battista Gaulli known as Baciccio, Francesco Trevisiani, Giacinto Giminiani, Filippo Lauri, Ciro Ferri, Domenico Piola and Andrea Scacciati.
