An example of the "fermata" shell number 298: "la stutata regina".

These photos were taken in the Province of Salerno on Friday January 17th, 2020 preparing for a competition in the town of Vibonati and in the Province of Naples on Saturday the 2nd of April in the town of Somma Vesuviana. These evening displays were fired by the company of Giovanni Boccia and Luigi Nappi from Palma Campania in the Province of Napoli, Regione Campania.
This shell with the superscription "2*" written on the outside indicate "stutata regina". The complete effect is one break with 21 bombettes, 7 titanium salute bombettes in the first mosaic and in the second mosaic with a long delay of the 14 color bombettes in the color blue and in the second fermata shell in the color red.
After each "stutata regina" we see a sferical shell of 21 cm caliber with color change.
There are 2 of this type of 21 cm caliber, 1-break shells in this evening display.

Immagine
In front two "fermata" shells with the superscription "2X", these are the "stutata regina". Behind these two shells we see two shells with the superscription "3X", so this effect is "3 intrecci".

Luigi Nappi is loading a "stutata" shell of 26 cm caliber and Michele Caiazza is waiting with the next "stutata" shell. In between the mortars for the sferical shells of 30 cm caliber. The letter "P" on the "stutata" shell means the effect "pampanella" = white.

The timing and colors in this display are the perfection for me.

An example of "fermata" shell number 130: "(4 botti + 3 riprese) + controcolpo".
It is a variation on the fermata shell number 510 "(ripresa + 2 botti + ripresa + 2 botti + ripresa) + controcolpo".

These photos were taken in the Province of Bari on November 9th, 2019 preparing for the daylight Festival San Trifone on November 10th in the town of Adelfia.
This daylight display was fired by the company of Palmieri Fireworks (Antonio Palmieri and Mino De Candia) from Apricena in the Province of Foggia.

This shell with the superscription "4L * * * ." written on the outside indicate "(4 botti + 3 riprese) + controcolpo".
The complete effect is 4 successive salute bombettes followed by three successive mosaic of salute bombettes and closed by a bottom-shot.
There are 3 of this type spherical shell of 25 cm caliber, 1-break shells in this daylight display.

This spherical "fermata" shell with the written superscription "4L * * * .", "4L" means 4 Lampi = "four botti" = 4 successive salute bombettes. "* * *" means
"three Ripresa" = three successive mosaic of salute bombettes and the last point "." means bottom-shot.

When you translate this daylight effect to an evening fermata effect it will be "(4 botti + 3 intrecci) + controbomba".

An example of the "fermata" shell number 518: "(2 intrecci) + (controbomba + intreccio botti) + (controbomba + intreccio botti) + controcolpo".

These photos were taken in the Province of Salerno on Friday January 17th, 2020 preparing for a competition in the town of Vibonati. This shell with the superscription "* * ___ * ___ * ___ ." written on the outside indicate "(2 intrecci) + (controbomba + intreccio botti) + (controbomba + intreccio botti) + controcolpo". Actually, here is written one more "___" controbomba!
The complete effect is in the first break 2 successive mosaic, the first mosaic is a splendid mosaic of 7 color bombettes in "pampanella" (= white) followed by a second mosaic of 7 color bombettes in purple.
In the second and third break a large bouquet with a heart of spherical stars and rings of cylindrical stars followed by a mosaic of 7 titanium salute bombettes.
Closed by a bottom-shot.
This shell is fired in this show as a "bomba da tiro". The bottom-shot is just a little bit too early, it shows how difficult it is to make a perfect effect!!

There are 2 of this type of 21 cm caliber, 3-break shells in this evening display.

Immagine
Nello (Aniello) Nappi with this shell with the superscription "* * ___ * ___ * ___ .". "* *" = due intrecci = two successive mosaic.
" ___ *" = controbomba + intreccio botti = large bouquet + mosaic. "." = controcolpo = bottom-shot.

An example of the "fermata" shell number 92: "(4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (controbomba)".

These photos were taken in the Province of Salerno on August 17th, 2016 preparing for the competition in the town of Siano by the company of Raffaele Bruscella and Raffaele Pellicani from Modugno in the Province of Bari.
This shell with the superscription "4B2*___" written on the outside indicate "(4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (controbomba)". The complete effect is in the first break 4 successive titanium salute bombettes followed by two successive mosaic with in each mosaic 4 color bombettes. In the first mosaic in "pampanella" (= white) and in the second mosaic in red. In the second break a large bouquet with a heart of white spherical stars and rings of red cylindrical stars.

There are 3 of this type of 16 cm caliber, 2-break shells in this evening display.

A "classic" in the Italian serie of fermate of 16 cm caliber!!

When you translate this eveningfermata to a daylightshell it becomes: "(4 botti + 2 riprese) + (controcolpo)".

I don't know if there has been fired once a fermata in the double effect so: "(4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (controbomba) + (controbomba)". So 4 breaks.
Did anyone see this effect? Or a "(4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (controbomba) + (4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (controbomba)".

Immagine
One of the three "fermata" shells of 16 cm caliber with the superscription "4B2*___". "4B" = 4 botti = 4 successive titanium salute bombettes.
"2*" = 2 intrecci = two successive mosaic with in each mosaic 4 color bombettes. "___" = controbomba = a large bouquet.

In the video of Pirovagando between minute 9.29 and 9.53. The smoke is a bad factor with this winddirection this evening.

In the video of Gecimali this fermata between minute 14:27 and 14:52. The show is in Montefalcione 1st of September 2015 during the annual competition in this town.

An example of the "fermata" shell number 473: "(ripresa + 4 botti + ripresa) + controcolpo".

These photos were taken in the Province of Bari on November 9th, 2017 preparing for the daylight Festival San Trifone on November 10th in the town of Adelfia.
This daylight display was fired by the company "Cavour" of Raffaele Boccia from Palma Campania in the Province of Napoli, Regione Campania.

This shell with the superscription "* 4. *" written on the outside indicate "(ripresa + 4 botti + ripresa) + controcolpo".
A variation of the classic effect "(4 botti + 2 riprese) + controcolpo".
The complete effect is a mosaic of salute bombettes followed by 4 successive salute bombettes and a mosaic of salute bombettes and closed by a bottom-shot.
There are 5 of this type of 16 cm caliber, 1-break shells in this daylight display.

Immagine
Aniello Boccia, the brother from Raffaele with three "fermata" shells with the superscription "* 4. *", "(ripresa + 4 botti + ripresa) + controcolpo".
"*" = Ripresa = a mosaic of salute bombettes. "4." = 4 Botti = 4 successive salute bombettes. The "controcolpo" is not written on the superscription.

Immagine
At the left side Aniello Boccia with three fermate and at the right side Salvatore Russo with two fermate in this effect.

Salvatore Russo is loading mortar number 10 with the fifth and last "fermata" shell in this effect.

An overview of the mortars for the serie fermate from Raffaele Boccia of 16 cm and 21 cm caliber, totally 36, from right to left 20 mortars for the fermate of 16 cm caliber and 12 mortars with the fermate of 21 cm caliber. At the end two mortars for the fermate in the "stutata" effect and in between two mortars for a salute effect.

When you translate this daylight shell to an evening shell it will be: "(intreccio + 4 botti + intreccio) + controbomba".

I use the video from the brothers Romano in Adelfia on the 10th of November 2010 because the effect is better in this display. Four shells in this display in this effect.
Between minute 6:28 and 6:57. https://youtu.be/_SyByWGavS8?t=388
