The bursting of the wagon, in Florence

Every year on Easter Sunday Event dating back about 400 years. An elaborate and ornate tower-shaped cart is pulled through the streets of Florence by two white oxen to Florence’s cathedral square. The float, equipped with fireworks, waits for a rocket in the shape of a dove to start from the Cathedral and arrive to hit it, kicking off the fireworks display upon impact. According to tradition, fireworks going off all at once is a good sign for the future.
