Scoppio del Carro (Explosion of the Cart - dating to the 14th century). In Florence on Easter Sunday this 500 year old 30' cart loaded with fireworks is paraded into the Piazza del Duomo. The fireworks are ignited by a mechanical dove which zings along a wire from the alter inside the Duomo to the cart outside all accompanied by the bells of Giotto's campanile.
