My wife and I, we have begun this collection just married; in our journeys in France and  in Italy, we were stopping often in the little brocante shops and if our finances were in assets, we were buying lamps (maybe with the secret hope to find the one of Aladino); we have bought many of  those, maybe too many: My wife was looking the aesthetic side, I instead the technical. In our collection there is everything: the humble oil lamp of alpine hut and  the pretentious kerosene lamp of ancient sittig-room.
