  • So many people. No historical atmosphere. Like big market with the same goods
  • Very beautiful to see.
  • The quarry was opened in the NINETEENTH century for the extraction of the stone necessary for the restoration of Palazzo public. With the establishment of the Italian Federation Balestrieri, the quarry was set up for shooting competitions with the great Italian crossbow. Very suggestive and theatre of agonistic events and historical commemoration.

  • Suggesating place. On the wall there are the coats of arms of other cities that have a historical path tied to the crossbow. It would have been nice to see a demonstration

  • Anonymous when there are no demonstrations, beautiful when there is national holiday on September 3 with the Balestra tournament (see attached photos)
