Luminara di San Ranieri

Luminara di San Ranieri.
16 June, after sundown.

The magical Luminara di San Ranieri takes place every 16 June on the Pisan riverfront. It’s a tradition that dates back to 1688.
A lot of small glass-enclosed candles are suspended from white wooden frames whose outlines follow the forms of the architecture- the buildings, bridges, churches and towers of the riverfront- they’re attached to.
It’s an unforgettable sight, and after sundown the fireworks start.
