  • You cannot miss this if you go to Pesaro. It is impressively displayed on a shiny surface with the sea as a backdrop. Don't miss the villino next to it. The town is really lovely as is the beach.  more »
  • the position is strategic. this artwork is impressive right on the frontline of Pesaro downtown. i like the installation  more »
  • One of the many versions of the famous shape by Pomodoro, installed in the central place of the Pesaro seafront. Worth to be seen like the others  more »

  • 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.
