<title> RIASSUNTO </title>Gli orologi solari rettilinei, sia quelli per fasce di latitudini particolari che quelli universali, derivano da una concezione assai complessa, nonostante oggi sia abbastanza semplice verificarne la validità astronomica grazie alla trigonometria sferica.Eppure, il processo intellettuale che, all'epoca, portò alla loro creazione fu certamente di natura geometrica.Sistematicamente trascurato negli antichi trattati di gnomonica, tale processo viene qui ricostituito, partendo dal menaeus di Vitruvio, che sta alla base della struttura geometrica di tali meridiane.Abbiamo altresì esaminato tutte le fonti storiche, attualmente conosciute, per cercare di scoprire l'origine degli orologi solari rettilinei e di tracciarne la storia.
