Il cielo notturno e le sue costellazioni hanno affascinato l’umanità fin dalle epoche più remote, ed è proprio osservando i movimenti delle stelle che le più antiche civiltà hanno cercato di comprendere il funzionamento della natura e di individuare il posto occupato dall’uomo all’interno del cosmo. Questo volume presenta agli studiosi e agli appassionati un testo finora quasi del tutto sconosciuto, frutto delle riflessioni della scuola di astronomia di Alessandria d’Egitto, il più importante centro della cultura scientifica antica: in esso si descrive il procedimento per fabbricare una sfera celeste, strumento essenziale per lo studio e l’insegnamento dell’astronomia. Il testo originale greco è presentato in una nuova edizione critica, corredata da una traduzione italiana; l’introduzione e il commento consentono anche al lettore meno esperto di orientarsi fra le numerose questioni discusse nel testo e di comprenderlo nel quadro dell’evoluzione del pensiero scientifico antico e medievale. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… The night sky and its constellations have charmed humanity since ancient times, and it is precisely by observing the movements of the stars that the most ancient civilizations have tried to understand the functioning of nature and to identify the place occupied by humans within the cosmos. This volume features a text so far almost completely unknown, the result of the reflections of the astronomy school of Alexandria in Egypt, the most important center of ancient scientific culture: it describes the procedure for manufacturing a celestial sphere, essential tool for the study and teaching of astronomy. The original Greek text is presented in a new critical edition, accompanied by an Italian translation; the introduction and the comment also allow the less expert reader to orient himself among the numerous issues discussed in the text and to understand it within the framework of the evolution of ancient and medieval scientific thought.]
