Civil Protection @ Municipality of Florence at Fuochi di San Giovanni

Municipality of Florence's Civil Protection Department organized a dissemination campaign on the good practices to be followed by citizens in case of a disaster during La Festa di San Giovanni a Firenze. The campaign addressed both Florentine and foreign citizens – guests of the event, and was closely related to the CARISMAND activities and findings.

On June 24, Florence celebrates the feast day for its patron saint, St. John the Baptist, considered the "symbol of moral rectitude and political correctness" on whom medieval Florence aspired to build its economic fortune and good government of the Republic. The image of the saint was even stamped on the city's currency, the florin.

The day has thus been a day of celebration for the city through the centuries. Every year, for St. John, the city organizes several cultural and folkloric events that end with the magnificent fireworks show, called i fochi di San Giovanni by Florentines.
