EASTER SUNDAY - "Explosion of the Cart"
During this manifestation, dating back to the fifteenth century, in the morning of Easter Sunday, an antique cart loaded with fireworks is dragged from Porta al Prato to the Piazza del Duomo by a team of white oxen, escorted by musicians, and flag-flyers in 15th century costumes.
The cart is connected by a wire to the high altar inside the cathedral on which rests a mechanical dove (the "columbina")that carries in its beak a twig of olive-tree.
During the Gloria, the archbishop who celebrates the Solemn Mass, activates the fireworks in the columbine that speeds trough the church to ignite the cart outside.
If no incidents come to hamper the trip of the colombina the fireworks spark-off which, for Florence is omen of a year of great prosperity.
