Scoppio del carro

Beautiful display for Easter Sunday

About

Scoppio del carro

The explosion of the cart is a manifestation of the popular secular-religious tradition that takes place on Easter Sunday in Florence. The brindellone, a pyrotechnical tower positioned on a cart, is pulled by a pair of oxen on the streets of the historic center of Florence and positioned between the baptistery and the cathedral. At the height of the ceremony, the archbishop lights a dove-shaped rocket from the altar of the cathedral, which, through a cord mechanism, runs through the central nave of the church and reaches the wagon outside, causing it to explode.
