Basilica of San Petronio – Scientific masterpieces

0
As well as housing a number of artistic masterpieces, the Basilica of San Petronio also has some scientific ones. A few examples? Inside the church, near the second pillar, there are two very special clocks, the first clocks in the world to have been built with pendulum correction. In the right aisle there is an organ dating from 1476, the first to be built with registers, i.e. with strings of pipes having the same timbre. And what about the sundial? It runs along the floor and is the longest sundial in the world.
