In the first years of 1800 it was represented to Trezza, during the festivity of S. John, the War of Algiers (La Presa di Algeri), thanks to Carl V, of the 1541. The Christian fleet was represented by rowing boat and feluccas that -were on the sea of Acitrezza, At the time to defend the coast there was the "bastioncello", said "dei Faraglioni", the great bastion, saying "della Trizza", and the palace of the prince of Reggio, that was fortified. In the great bastion, the prisoners were held until when they were delivered to the conquerors. It was a great show, which was rendered more attractive by the construction on the beach of small forts, made of wood and canes and equipped with guns. But the performance is not taking place anylonger today, because there are not symbols like the Palace of the Prince and the great bastion, that - were lost, because of the construction of new buildings.
