“Time is a lenient god”

21 maggio 2013
To confirm this in Sophocles’ words, “Time is a lenient god” for Fagnola - in addition to essays, monographs and newspaper articles to promote a greater understanding of timepieces, a fair entitled Tribute to Timepieces was launched in 1986.
It continued to be held for ten years at the Turin Exhibition Centre and was the very fi rst fair to see the participation of both individual sellers and famous brands and that was aimed exclusively at the general public.
A scenario offering a kaleidoscope of brands and timepieces ranging from period to the latest models and prototypes, fashion pieces, but also niche items for collectors. Over 150,000 enthusiasts visited the ten editions of Tribute to Timepieces, which also included prestigious auctions held for charity with the participation of leading personalities from the artistic, business nd cultural fields. Today, what remains of this somewhat unique venture are the magnificent catalogues, which are now considered true collectors items by connoisseurs of time.
