The MB&F M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva is showcasing an exhibition of 25 rare and beautiful 19th century surveying instruments, thanks to Italian connoisseur and collector Bruno Gritti.
The 18th and 19th centuries were the golden age of surveying, an era when previously unmapped parts of the world including the Americas and far-flung European colonies became new frontiers for trade, commerce and settlement.

About Bruno Gritti:
Bruno Gritti gradually built up his collection through visits to antique fairs like the Mercante in Fiera in Parma. Bruno Gritti has chosen the M.A.D.Gallery to fulfil his wish of passing the baton onto kindred spirits with a fascination for history and an appreciation of fine mechanical craftsmanship.
