1582902776Code 6570 Salmoiraghi compassLiquid compass on universal joint made by La Filotecnica Milano Ing. A. Salmoiraghi in the early 1900s and adopted by the Royal Hydrographic Institute equipped with an optical prism for the precise reading of the degrees of the compass card. Sixteen-winds compass card complete with goniometric circle. The compass is placed in its original walnut case complete with accessories. Custom made display base made of walnut. Box measures 29.5x23.5 cm - 11.6x9.25 inches, height 17 cm - 6.69 inches, compass diameter 15 cm - 5.9 inches.

After having stayed and worked in different locations, in Piedmont, in Paris and Florence, Ignazio Porro (1801-1875), well-known scientist, professor of optics, inventor and precursor in the field of wide-angle lenses, settled in Milan and began teaching at Polytechnic. In Milan in 1865 he also founded a school-workshop specialized in the construction of topographic instruments together with Alessandro Duroni, pioneer of Italian photography, with the name of Filotecnica. On the death of Duroni, in 1871, Angelo Salmoiraghi, a pupil of Porro, already a very young soldier during the third war of independence against the Austrians, entered into society with his master and in 1877, after the Porro's death he bought the factory, which took the name of La Filotecnica Ing. A. Salmoiraghi, expanding its product range, producing mathematical instruments for drawing, astronomy, meteorology and navigation; the company builds, among other things, the first Italian sewing machine. During the First World War, it supplied war instruments, mainly aeronautics, and created a camera for aerial photography. In 1927 the company took the name of La Filotecnica Ing. A. Salmoiraghi S.A.. In 1939 Angelo Salmoiraghi died. During the Second World War a large part of the production was dedicated to war equipment and the company was therefore considered a war target: the factories are bombed, but at the end of the conflict the company manages to recover immediately. In the '70s it was bought by Dollond & Aitchinson, together with the firm Viganò, and became the Salmoiraghi Viganò, which in 2017 became the property of Leonardo Del Vecchio's Luxottica.
