About the speaker

Petr and his wife Melanie take care of the Prague Astronomical Clock. Formerly academic sculptors, they have devoted previous 25 years to tower clock maintenance across Czech Republic.

Although 600 years old, the Astronomical Clock still has many centuries left, as Petr believes. How does the care for this “jewel” look like and what is the purpose of preserving medieval machines in the modern world?
