    Fine promenade that is visited by Italians booral. Late in the evening even high-life. Nice restaurants and entertainment.

    Nice pomodoro in the beach area of Pesaro - not something incredible or interesting. Not worth going for it especially - nice to see if its on your way  more »

    The impressive Ball lying on the surface of the water of a fountain from which you look at the sea, is the bronze casting made in 1998 by the sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro polyester coupling model in Pesaro in 1971 but released in 1967 for Expo in Montreal. The original work is located today in Rome in front of the main entrance of the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Since the 1970s, Pandey were fond of this ' presence ' in piazzale della Libertà, starting to call it familiarly ' Tomato ' ball. Since then, the Big Sphere has become the destination for meeting being traditional to the sea or road unequivocal reference whenever you need to provide information to visitors passing through town.

  • 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.
