Scoppio del carro – Easter Day

Sunday, April 1st, Easter Day, will take place as usual every year, the traditional Scoppio del Carro.

The explosion of the cart is a folklore event that takes place on Easter Sunday in Florence. The Brindellone, a pyrotechnical tower positioned on a cart, is pulled by a pair of oxen through the streets of the historic center of Florence and positioned between the baptistery and the cathedral.

The Bandierai degli Uffizi will always be present together with all the other groups of the Procession of the Florentine Republic.
