The mechanism of opening is drawn here in the way according to which they realized it in the theatrical buildings of the '700 and of the 800, where the Flyloft and the garret were an unique room in which the wooden trusses of the coverage were exposed and they were used by the stage mechanism (look, for instance, the page of the Teatro Rossini of Lugo of Romagna). In these cases, what in the Italian theaters they were called ''tiri in botte'' (barrel fly facilities), as that of this sketch, were set in series among the wooden carrying structures of the roof, or fixed to the vertical central elements of the same.The modern stage technique has subsequently privileged the fragmentation of the fly facilities, also for safety reasons and the ancient ''tiri in botte'', very beautiful and spectacular, have almost exclusively been maintained in the conservative restaurations of the most ancient theaters.
