The most amazing fireworks I’ve ever seen.

Torello is a small village down the mountain from Ravello on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Every third Sunday in September, there is a reconstruction of the first invasion of Pisani. The Virgin Mary is paraded around the village and the festivities begin when she reaches the central cathedral. All the houses of the hamlet are illuminated by lights that change colour and a massive fireworks display to represent the sequence of the four historical events: the battle, the fire, the pillage until the defeat and the driving out of the Pisani.

This is only a small part of it, ending with the fire.
