  • See at night this sphere with its reflection on the water is something really impressive. Congratulations to the municipality of Pesaro who knew how to enhance this work.

  • Known by most as the "ball", the sculpture stands in the center of the square tomato feature located along the sea. Meeting place of Pandey and vacationers. In the shadow of the sphere of tomato are followed throughout the summer numerous activities such as performances by bands, choruses, etc..

  • Best place to relax and free your mind.
  • This monument is a curious ball-shaped modern sculpture (actually a bronze cast) by artist Arnaldo Pomodoro. Its official name is "Sfera Grande" (Large Sphere), but everybody in town calls it "la palla" (the ball), and is a common meeting point for youngsters throughout the year. "The ball" has unexpectedly become the most recognizable symbol of the city and sits amidst a nice rotonda on the sea, an excellent place to catch photos, some fresh evening air and an aperitivo during hot summer nights. Much photographed by tourists, it stars as "Tomato's Ball" (Pomodoro, the artist's surname, is the name of the vegetable) on some very hard to find old postcards.
  • The location at the seashore is very nice - but as a sculpture, it not a very memorable object.
