Easter Fireworks In Florence

Florence's Scoppio del Carro is one of Europe's grandest Easter spectacles. During Mass in the Duomo, a mechanical dove is sent flying from the altar along with a wire. It soars out the doors and into the main square to a centuries-old, two-story, ox-drawn cart. Upon arrival, it triggers a magnificent fireworks display — like a time-release booby-trap left over from the city's Carnevale (pre-Lent) celebrations.
