An example of "fermata" shell number 59: "(2 intrecci) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) +
(croce di Malta) + controcolpo".

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 "2xoxox crocediMalta ." written on the outside indicate "(2 intrecci) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) + (croce di Malta) + controcolpo". The complete effect is two successive mosaic in the first break, a mosaic of 7 color bombettes in "pampanella" = white, followed by a mosaic of 7 color bombettes in goldglitter. In the second break a large bouquet with a pistel of red round stars + a mosaic of 9 titaniumsalute bombettes and rings of cilindrical green stars. In the third break the same bouquet and in the fourth break a large bouquet with a pistel of red round stars + a Maltese cross and rings of red cilindrical stars and closed by a bottom-shot.

There are 2 of this type of 21 cm caliber, 4-break shells in this evening display.

"2X" = 2 intrecci = 2 mosaic in succession. "OX" = "controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio" = bouquet + a mosaic of titanium salute bombettes. "croce di Malta" = Maltese cross. "." = "controcolpo" = bottom-shot.

This effect is also used in the "bomba da tiro", even with one more break, so "(2 intrecci) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) + (controbomba + intreccio botti al titanio) + (croce di Malta) + controcolpo".

An example of the "fermata" shell number 102: "(intreccio + 4 botti + intreccio) + (controbomba)".

These photos were taken in the Province of Salerno on August 17th, 2015 preparing for the competition with 5 companies in the town of Siano by the company of Gerardo Scudo from Ercolano in the Province of Napoli. Scudo is the winner of this edition.
This shell with the superscription "* 4 *" written on the outside indicate "(intreccio + 4 botti + intreccio) + (controbomba)". We miss the sign "O" or "____" for the "controbomba" in the superscription. This is because every fermata in this serie of 14 shells has a controbomba in the second break.
The complete effect is in the first break a mosaic of four color bombettes in red followed by 4 successive titanium salute bombettes and a mosaic of four color bombettes in "pampanella" (= white) and in the second break a bouquet with a heart of blue spherical stars and rings of red cylindrical stars.

There are 4 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 and a variation on the effect "(4 botti + 2 intrecci) + (controbomba)"!!

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

I don't know if there has been fired once a fermata in the double effect so: "(2 riprese) + (8 botti) + (2 riprese) + (controcolpo)". So 3 breaks.
Did anyone see this effect?

Immagine

An example of the "fermata" shell number 37: "(4 intrecci)".

These photos were taken in the Province of Campobasso, region Molise on November 15th, 2009 preparing for the evening competition in the town of Rotello.

This evening display was fired by the company of the three brothers Carmelo, Emilio and Michele Di Candia from Sassano in the Province of Salerno, Region Campania.

This shell with the superscription "4* ck" written on the outside indicate "(4 intrecci)".
The complete effect is 4 successive mosaic of colour bombettes in crackling gold. In one mosaic 7 bombettes, so totally in this shell 28 bombettes in 4 layers.
There are 3 of this type of 21 cm caliber, 1-break shells in this evening display. In between these shells we see 3 shells in the effect "farfalla" which means "butterfly".

Immagine
The "fermata" shell with the superscription "4* ck". "4*" = 4 intrecci = 4 successive mosaic of colour bombettes. "ck" = in crackling gold.
The caliber of the mortar for the "farfalla" shell is larger as for the "4 intrecci", I expect 25 cm.

Immagine
An employee of Di Candia is loading the second "fermata" shell in this effect.

Immagine
Carmelo with the next "fermata" shell after the last "farfalla" effect shell with the superscription "*4B*__ __ __",
"(intreccio + 4 botti + intreccio) + (controbomba) + (controbomba) + (controbomba)". Four breaks.

The video is from the competition in the town of Solofra on the 26th of June 2018 fired by the company Boccia & Nappi from Palma Campania in the province of Naples.
In the video of Pirovagando between minute 9.32 and 9.53 https://youtu.be/ky6CnmPoWPo?t=571

These three fermata shells have a second break (controbomba) after the first break with "4 intrecci". So "(4 intrecci) + (controbomba)".
