Fireworks were invented by the Chinese in the 12th century to scare away evil spirits. They are realized filling a small container with powder that exploding causes a colourful fire in the sky. Fireworks are often employed during public or religion. The pyrotechnic show starts slowly and increases the rhythm during the performance reaching the peak at the end. Nowadays the shows are often accompanied by music. Most part of the images are taken during the "Fire holiday" which occurs each year on September 8th in Recco, a village in Liguria.
