This enormous armillary sphere, more than 3 metres in height, was begun on 4 March 1588 and completed on 6 May 1593. It was constructed on the commission of Ferdinando I by his 'master of the Sphere', Antonio Santucci di Pomarance. At the centre of the sphere is the terrestrial globe, surrounded by seven planetary spheres and a sphere of the fixed stars bearing the zodiac band... a ninth, known as the Primum mobile, which is fixed and bears the polar caps and the meridians
