Best Answer

Italian Bowling is referred to as Bocce or Boccia. It is a type of bowling. Bowling in general refers to any sport in which a ball is rolled or thrown on a green or down a lane towards an object or group of objects. The rules of Bocce differ from that of tenpin bowling.

What is 'bowling alley' in Italian?

Pista da bowling is an Italian equivalent of 'bowling alley'. In the word by word translation, the feminine gender noun 'pista' means 'track, course'. The preposition 'da'means 'from'. The American/English word 'bowling' is a loan word. The phrase is pronounced 'PEE-stah dah BOW-leeng'.Some sources may suggest 'bocce' as an Italian equivalent of 'bowling'. But the two games are different. The Italian 'bocce' is the French 'boules'. The game tends to be played on the ground outside, and with balls that are quite a big smaller and lighter than bowling ball size and weight.
