The cannon shot from Forte Belvedere

The cannon shot from Forte Belvedere has aroused strong emotions in the hearts of the Florentines.

In fact, after a silence since the early fifties, yesterday the cannon, which was fired at noon from Forte Belvedere in Florence, has been repeated in exceptional circumstances.

The Florentines called it the ” voltapentole” (pan turner) as it announced we approach of dinner time, was suspended with the transition from military property to the civil authorities of the fortress on the hill overlooking the city.

At 10:00 am the doors were opened to the ancient fortress city free of charge. They came in thousands. The reenactment was introduced by Luciano Artusi, historian and director of the Calcio Storico Fiorentino Procession. At 12:00 am a perfect reproduction of artillery from the 1500s, made by the Historica Lucense of Lucca, simulated a burst with blanks.

The boom of the cannon, from Fort Belvedere, resonates throughout Florence. It’s time to stop working and go out to eat.  Like until the 50s, Florence has relived a tradition. A success of thousands of people, thanks to the charity walk “Corri la Vita”, it started the re-enactment desired by Corriere Fiorentino for the final opening day of the Forte Belvedere at the end of the Zang Huan exhibition.
