Up to a little while ago this centre had been individualised with precision in a physical place, constituted by the base of a ninepin set to the centre of a billiards in a central coffee in the most central plazas of Foligno. Today the symbol of Foligno '' center of the world '' is the ring of the Quintana, prestigious medieval tournament, main city demonstration.
