Before talking about of his game, we will try to tell you more about this great Italian champion. Born in Torchiarolo, Crocefisso Maggio owes his name to his date of birth. On May 2nd, 1962, when he was born, in his native country it was celebrating, in fact, the Crucifix feast.

His specialty is the Italian Five-pin billiards where he holds a number of notable firsts. He is, in fact, the only person to have, at the same time, the titles of World Champion, European Champion and Italian Pro Champion.

The Italian Five-pin billiards is a specialty that is played on an International Table (the same used for the carom billiards or carambole billiards). It can be easily recognized by the absence of the holes and by the presence of 5 pins. Because of his high skills, Maggio has been called the "Maradona of Billiards".
