For years, I have read about and seen videos of the Easter celebrations that happen each year in Florence, and seeing the shenanigans in person was high on my to-do list.
Last year, I finally made it happen.
I’ve collected the best of the video and photos I took that morning in the video below, which I hope you enjoy. Apologies for the unsteady video and uneven images; I was mostly holding my camera up over my head, so I couldn’t really see what I was shooting. I am a small person, and it was super crowded, y’all.
The background on what the heck is going on here, including how old this tradition is, is in my original article: Easter in Florence – so go read that first if you haven’t already.
