Piggybacking on another post I just read, we will be in Florence on Easter Sunday Can anyone tell me more about the Scoppio del Carro? Do we need to attend mass at the Duomo that day in order to get a good view? It sounds pretty cool! No need to attend the mass inside the Duomo.

It was Pazzino who, it is said, was first to the wall of Jerusalem and raised the Christian banner when the army successfully took the holy city. As a reward, he was given three flints stone chips that were taken from the Holy Sepulcher of Christ itself. Scoppio del Carro — Photo courtesy Visit Florence. Every light and hearth fire would be extinguished on Good Friday, to commemorate the death of Christ. On Easter Sunday , the holy fire was illuminated to represent that Christ had risen again; a symbol of new life that coincides with the Spring. The fire was taken to be shared throughout the city on a cart, beginning of course with the home of the Pazzi family. This ritual became more elaborate over time, with the cart becoming ornate and spectacular.

The story goes that a Florentine man was the first to scale the walls of Jerusalem during the First Crusade, as a reward for his bravery he was given three flints from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the most holy sites in Christendom. He took these flints home with him to Florence where they were used to strike holy fire, which was carried through the city by men bearing torches at Easter, to symbolise the new life offered by Christs resurrection.

Italy is famous for its spectacular celebrations surrounding Pasqua Easter , and none is more explosive than the Scoppio del Carro in Florence on Easter morning. As a reward, he was given three chips of stone from the Holy Sepulchre of Christ by Godfrey IV de Bouillon; the stones were transported to Florence in and used to light the "new fire," which symbolized new life after Christ is risen at Easter. Traditionally, this new fire was blessed and distributed to citizens of Florence, just as the ritual had been performed in Jerusalem. Over time, the holy fire became transported on a cart, first to the Pazzi family and then to the rest of the city's dwellers. Around the end of the late s, the cart began to charged with explosive powder and, more recently, fireworks.
