The first traces of the game of bowls date back to 7,000 b.C. in Catal Huyuk, Turkey. It’s a practice that has crossed eras and conquered entire populations, synonymous with encounter, participation and healthy sports competition. In Verona alone there are 20 amateur associations dedicated to bowls, including Società Polisportiva Unicredit Verona (40 members). These enthusiasts gather every week to train at the Bocciodromo Gavagnin on Montelungo Street and will represent the game in this edition of the Festival.
