characterized in that

said connection element (3) is a U-bolt comprising:

- a body (34),

- a first peg (30) and a second peg (31 ) that project from the same side of the body (34), in such a way that a peg of the connection element (3) is disposed in the housing (10a, 10b) of the top (1 ) of the table (100), and the other peg of the connection element (3) is disposed in the housing (10a, 10b) of the top (1 ) of another table;

said housing (10a, 10b) of the top comprising locking means (B) to lock the connection element (3) in the housing, preventing the connection element (3) from rotating inside housing (10a, 10b).

2) The table (100) of claim 1 , wherein said housing (10a, 10b) comprises a cavity (1 1 , 12, 13, 14) that can be accessed by means of an opening (1 1 a, 12a, 13a, 14a) and contains a peg of the connection element (3); and

said locking means (B) comprise a radial opening (1 1 b, 13b, 14b) obtained in the top, which radially ends in the cavity (1 1 , 12, 13, 14) of the housing (10a, 10b) and contains the body (34) of the connection element (3).

3) The table (100) of claim 2, wherein said body (34) of the connection element (3) comprises:

- a central plate (34a) suitable for being disposed inside the radial opening (1 1 b, 13b, 14b) of the housing (10a, 10b), and

- a first and a second lateral portion (30b, 31 b) that are enlarged with respect to the central plate, disposed at the end of the central plate (34a) and suitable for being disposed inside the cavities (1 1 , 12, 13, 14) of the housing (10a, 10b);

each peg (30, 31 ) of the connection element (3) projecting from a lateral portion (30b, 31 b).

4) The table (100) of claim 3, wherein said lateral portions (30b, 31 b) of the body (34) of the connection element and said cavities (1 1 , 12, 13, 14) of the housing (10a, 10b) have a cylindrical shape.

5) The table (100) of any one of the preceding claims, wherein each peg (30, 31 ) of the connection element (3) ends with an enlarged portion (30a, 31 a).

6) The table (100) of any one of claims 2 to 5, wherein said at least one housing of the top comprises a multiple housing (10a) disposed at the corners of the top (1 ); said multiple housing (10a) comprising:

- a first cavity (1 1 ) with an axis perpendicular to a lateral edge (17) of the top (1 ) that can be accessed by means of a first lateral opening (1 1 a) obtained on the first lateral edge (17) of the top (1 );

- a second cavity (12) with an axis perpendicular to a second lateral edge (18) of the top (1 ) that can be accessed by means of a second lateral opening (12a) obtained on the second lateral edge (18) of the top (1 );

- a third cavity (13) with an axis perpendicular to an upper surface

(19) of the top (1 ) that can be accessed by means of an upper opening (13a) obtained on the upper surface (19) of the top (1 ).

7) The table (100) of claim 6, wherein said locking means (B) of the multiple housing (10a) comprise:

- a first radial opening (1 1 b) obtained on the first lateral edge (17) and on the second lateral edge (18), at a corner formed by said lateral edges; said first radial opening (1 1 b) radially ending in the first cavity (1 1 ) and in the second cavity (12);

- a second radial opening (13b) obtained on a lateral edge (17, 18) and on the upper surface (19) of the top (1 ); said second radial opening

(13b) radially ending in the first or in the second cavity (1 1 , 12) and in the third cavity (13).

8) The table (100) of any one of the preceding claims, wherein said at least one housing of the top comprises a single housing (10b) comprising a cavity (14) with an axis perpendicular to the lower surface (16) of the top (1 ), said cavity (14) of the single housing (10b) being accessible by means of a lower opening (14a).

9) The table (100) of claim 8, wherein the locking means (B) of the single housing (10b) comprises a radial opening (14b) obtained on a lateral edge (17, 18) and radially ending in the cavity (14) of the single housing (10b).

10) The table (100) of claim 8 or 9 when depending on claim 5, wherein the locking means (B) of the single housing (10b) comprise a narrowing (14c) suitable for cooperating with the enlarged portion (30a, 31 a) of the pegs (30, 31 ) in such a way to prevent the connection element (3) from falling by gravity.

1 1 ) The table (100) of any one of claims 8 to 10, wherein the top (1 ) has at least four lateral edges and comprises at least two single housings (10b) on a first lateral edge (17), at least two single housings (10b) on a second lateral edge (18); the center distance between the two single housings (10b) disposed on the same first lateral edge (17) is equal to the center distance between two single housings (10b) disposed on the same second lateral edge (18) of the top (1 ).
