An example of "fermata" shell number 72: "(2 intrecci) + (2 intrecci) + (2 intrecci)".

These photos were taken in the Province of Lecce on April 24th, 2010 preparing for the competition in the town of Castro by Amodio Di Matteo and brothers.
This shell with the superscription "2X 2X 2X" written on the outside indicate "(2 intrecci) + (2 intrecci) + (2 intrecci)". The complete effect is three successive breaks with in each break a mosaic of 7 color bombettes in "pampanella" = white, followed by a mosaic of 7 color bombettes in goldglitter.

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

An example of "fermata" shell number 486: "(2 botti + ripresa + 2 botti + ripresa) + controcolpo".

These photos were taken in the Province of Bari on November 9th, 2016 preparing for the daylight Festival San Trifone on November 10th in the town of Adelfia.
This daylight display was fired by the company of Giovanni Pannella from Ponte in the Province of Benevento.
This shell with the superscription "2B" written on the outside indicate "(2 botti + ripresa + 2 botti + ripresa) + controcolpo".
The complete effect is 2 successive salute bombettes followed by a mosaic of salute bombettes and again 2 successive salute bombettes followed by a mosaic of salute bombettes and closed by a bottom-shot.

An example of "fermata" shell number 13: "(4 botti + intreccio) + (controbomba)".

These photos were taken in the Province of Naples on April 2nd, 2016 preparing for the Festival in the town of Somma Vesuviana. This shell with the superscription "4B X" written on the outside indicate "(4 botti + intreccio) + (controbomba)". The complete effect is in the first break 4 successive titaniumsalutebombettes followed by a mosaic of 4 colour bombettes in red and in the second break a bouquet with a heart of blue spherical stars and rings of red cylindrical stars.
Note: the "controbombe" are in different colour combinations!!

There are 4 of this type of 16 cm caliber, 2-break shells in this evening display.

In fact this "fermata" shell has a combination of three Italian effects, "scala": 4 successive titaniumsalutebombettes, "intreccio": a mosaic of 4 colour bombettes and a "controbomba": large bouquet with a pistil of round stars and rings of cylindrical stars. A "classic" in the Italian serie of fermate of 16 cm caliber!!

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

I don't know if there has been fired once a fermata in the double effect so: "(scala a 8 botti) + (2 intrecci) + (controbomba) + (controbomba)". So 4 breaks. Did anyone see this effect?

An example of the "fermata" shell number 339: "(stutata) + (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 "B*___" written on the outside indicate "(stutata) + (controbomba)". The complete effect is in the first break a mosaic of color bombettes with a long delay which shows the effect "stutata". In this first break there will be 4 layers of 7 color bombettes in each layer, 28 bombettes make a large mosaic.
In the second break a bouquet with a heart of blue spherical stars and rings of red cylindrical stars.

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

A "classic" in the Italian serie of fermate of 21 cm caliber!!

When you translate this eveningfermata to a daylightshell it becomes: "(stutata) + (controcolpo)".

It started with Michele Bruscella, he has 4 sons: Giuseppe, Bartolomeo, Vincenzo en Antonio. The oldest son Giuseppe has 3 sons: Michele, Raffaele and Bartolomeo. His second son Raffaele is the father of Giuseppe.

Because of the smoke in Siano I show the video with this effect of the openingshow of San Trifone in Adelfia on the 9th of November 2019 by the company Piromagia.
The difference is that in this show this effect was used as a "bomba da tiro", so with a "controcolpo" = bottom-shot.

In the video of EarthshakerPyro: between 2:46 and 3:00 minutes.



In the video of Spolette: between 4:35 and 4:48 minutes.

"(ripresa + botto + ripresa + botto + ripresa) + (ripresa + botto + ripresa + botto + ripresa) + controcolpo" and at the end two mortars in the "stutata" effect.

When you translate this daylight shell to an evening shell it will be: "(4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (4 botti + 2 intrecci) + controbomba".

Re: How many different "fermata" shells are possible?

Messaggio da stutata 28 »

An example of fermata shell number 461: (ripresa + botto + ripresa + botto + ripresa) + (ripresa + botto + ripresa + botto + 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 "2// 3* 3B" written on the outside indicate "(ripresa + botto + ripresa + botto + ripresa) +
(ripresa + botto + ripresa + botto + ripresa) + controcolpo". The complete effect is a mosaic of salute bombettes followed by a salute bombette, again a mosaic of salute bombettes followed by a salute bombette and a mosaic of salute bombettes in the first and second break and closed by a bottom-shot.

There are 3 shells in this effect during the display, in diameter 21 cm, two breaks.

"3B" = "3 botti" = 2 salute bombettes and the controcolpo. "3*" = "3 riprese" = three mosaic of salute bombettes.

When you translate this daylight fermata to an evening fermata it will become: "(intreccio + botto + intreccio + botto + intreccio) +
(intreccio + botto + intreccio + botto + intreccio) + (controbomba)".
