Fioretto Grave (Santucci)

Full name of step in source: 
Rule 160. Fioretto Grave. (p127)

Beginning with the left foot behind in passo naturale, separate the knees a little, and lower the body somewhat, as in the figure, in the manner of a reverenza, in the time of one ternary beat. Then give a sottopiede to the right with the left, and raising the right in front do a cadenza ordinaria in the time of another beat. This can also be done per contrario. It is so called because it takes twice as long as a fioretto ordinario.
