Boccia alley

Lanee’s Residenz  |  BOCCIA ALLEY


Game and fun

A game which senior citizens still can play very easily was the deciding factor for building the boccia alley. Surely you still remember the partly gnarled men in Italy, with a cigarette in their mouth, how they competed and lamented for each centimeter, when it came to find out which bowl is laying closer to the «Pallino».

At  Lanee’s Residenz  player as  well as spectators  meet regularely  in the eveing  hours for not to be  taken  to serious competitions. Participating and the social experience is far more important then winning.

Even the first Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer, was a keen  boccia player.  The picture shows him in 1958 playing  boccia in his vacation village Cadenabbia.
