The long awaited appointment for Easter in Florence is without a doubt the suggestive Scoppio del Carro (Explosion of the Cart), which takes place on Easter Sunday at (about) 10am in the historic center of Florence. The cart (called “Brindellone”) is ignited by a dove, well actually a clay figure in the shape of a dove, which is sent flying down from the alter Maggiore of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, giving “life” to a spectacular show which every year delights the locals and the visitors.
