The recovered Archimedes Planetarium
ROTONDELLA - "The Recovered Archimedes Planetarium"
by Giovanni Pastore English Version.
The study carried out by Engineer Giovanni Pastore from Rotondella, Basilicata, Italy is now available in English. It was published in 2010 and has been presented in various Italian localities as well as abroad. Its content has gained intriguing approval and offers a new interpretation of the varied scientific and technological achievements from the last one hundred years, indeed it has shaken principles had been considered definitive. The title is "The Recovered Archimedes Planetarium" and the translation was conceived and developed to the tiniest detail (so important for scientific works) by the author, followed by a revision by Caroline Miranda Feetam, in order to maintain the true journey of research and study as well as the relative deductions.
In Rotondella (*) Pastore donated a copy of the new publication in English to the library "Prof. Mario Di Matteo", accompanied by Feetam, and outlined the reasons that pushed him to begin this specialised job, which took him the best of 2 years to complete.
It became necessary to produce this edition, explained Pastore, in order to satisfy the requests that I had received over the years from various international academics; from single scholars to various enthusiasts and cult followers of the themes developed in the book. In fact, it was to such an extent that this version has already reached the USA, Japan, China and other European countries.
A scientific study that cost the author time and hard work with research that spans archaeology, history, literature, technology and science, it is extremely complex especially given the conclusions that Pastore has come to. The study is divided into three parts that deal with the Archimedes Planetarium (a gear wheel found in Olbia and restored by the Superintendency of the Archeological Heritage, who date it back to the period between the end of the 3rd century and the mid-2nd century BC), the Greek gear of Antikythera (one of the Aegean Islands) and the Pitcher of Ripacandida.
“As regards the gear of Olbia, the restoration phase, adds Pastore, revealed some surprises that I believe to be extremely important; starting from the unusual composition of the metal alloy used - brass. The gear teeth also have a special curvature that makes them extraordinarily similar to the mathematically perfect gear wheels of modern times and since it was made before all other mechanisms known to us, we can consider it extremely evolved”.
For Pastore, the concurrence between the “scientific evidence” and the “historical, literary and archaeological references” has led us to conclude that the fragment from Olbia was an integral part of the Planetarium of Archimedes. As far as the Planetarium of Antikythera is concerned, on which Pastore based his study of the kinematic model also present in the wheel of Olbia and precursor to the Heliocentrism of Copernicus, it can only be concluded that the Hellenic scientists already knew about the planetary motions of celestial bodies.

Giovanni Pastore (1954, Rotondella - Basilicata, Italy), received his
degree with full marks in Mechanical Engineering at Turin Polytechnic University in
1978. Even before graduating he was offered a contract at Fiat Mirafiori
in Turin, where for the following five years he worked at the automotive
design office, dealing with structural calculations.
