Since 1956 this Italian firm has been part of the great Florentine tradition in optical instruments. Today, Palomar is growing stronger thanks to innovations and the place its products hold in the cultural spotlight. The current management has updated the company's organization and approach by emphasizing design and calling on its past and present skills. Starting from its name, that comes from Italo Calvino's famous book, Palomar embodies a passion for observation instruments. But, it is mainly in the engineering and development of original products that Palomar does its best, by focusing attention on new forms and new applications in instruments traditionally dedicated to viewing and measuring the world.
