This monumental relic of the Atomic Age has just landed at M.Goldstein.
Named Cygan, created in 1957 by Dr Ing Fiorito, an aeromodeller from Turin. Over eight feet tall, this is probably one of Europe’s most advanced robots for the time. Originally he could walk, turn and lift. He accepted spoken commands as well as signals and responded to light rays, making him quite a celebrity in the 1950s and 1960s.
Cygan was first presented at the Milan sample fair in 1957. In 1958 his creator brought him to Olympia in London where he performed for the astonished crowds.
Today he still commands attention and resides in the interior of M.Goldstein…come and meet the dormant giant.
