Allure in the decrepit. The guide was telling us how the olive oil was made, I think, but I was hardly paying attention. I was fixated on this.
🇮🇹 OROLOGIO AD ACQUA DEL PINCIO
L’orologio (installato a Villa Borghse nel 1873) fu ideato nel 1867 da Giovanni Battista Embriaco, frate domenicano appassionato di orologi e d’ingegneria. Nello stesso anno Padre Embriaco inviò un prototipo del suo orologio ad acqua all’Esposizione Universale di Parigi dove, per paura di romperlo e difficoltà tecniche, non fu neppure tolto dalle casse in cui era imballato.
L’orologio funziona grazie alla presenza dell’acqua che, cadendo dall’alto, riempie due bacinelle allungate a forma di foglioline (simili a due piatti di una bilancia), in bilico su un perno. Le due bacinelle oscillando attivano il meccanismo che fa girare le lancette segnando così l’ora.
🇬🇧 WATER CLOCK IN VILLA BORGHESE
The inventor Giovan Battista Embriaco, a Dominican friar and a clocks enthusiast, built this hydrochronometer (aslo known as water clock) in 1867. He displayed his water clock at the Universal Exposition in Paris the same year: in that occasion, he was so afraid to break it that the inventor did not even unpacked it from his original package.
The water clock, today installed in the Borghese Gardens, works 24/7. The original idea on which this great work of mechanical engineering is to use the force of the water to move the pendulum and wind the clock, adding a ringtone that begins playing with the alternate filling of two basins.
