Most boccedromes ( Campi di Bocce ) in Italy now use a synthetic surface for play. This surface is laid over a carefully built up substrate of other layers including stone and asphalt. The final surface is poured on and let to settle by gravity over that perfectly flatly prepared subsurface. Sand is dusted on the final dried and set up surface to give something like the original quality and “feel” of the old style outdoor terrains.
