The relics were taken to Florence in 1101 and entrusted to the Pazzi family. The 3 stones were used to sparkle a "new" fire (Easter symbol for a new life). After being blessed, the fire was given to the families to light their hearth. This is how in Florence spread the habit of distributing the "Holy Spirit" to the clergy and the people, as a symbol of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.On Easter Sunday a big cart, the same as the one of the XVIII° century, decorated with festoons and drawn by two white oxes parades along the streets of Florence from Porta a Prato, where it remains for 364 days, to the Cattedral' s Square. A steel wire connects it to the Altar of the Cattedral. During the Mass, at midday, in the moment of the "Alleluja" the Archbishop fires a rocket that look likes a dove ( which reminds of the Holy fire sparkled by the 3 old stones). The rocket, which is connected to the wire, reaches the cart stuffed with fireworks and makes it explode to the big happines of the viewers. According to the old tradition, if the little dove did not reach the cart the new harvest would not be good. Today it is interpreted as a symbol of good or bad omen for the city of Florance.If you are wine lovers, you can follow the "wine street" full of famous small and big cellars where you can taste excellent types of wine.
