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".

@@@@@ This is a variation on shell number 94. "(4 botti + 2 riprese) + controcolpo" and shell number 473. "(ripresa + 4 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.
There are 4 of this type of 16 cm caliber, 1-break shells in this daylight display.

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?
