Rificolona is a traditional holiday.
the boys of Florence go around with lamps of colored paper, created in various and eccentric forms, with a candle inside, and suspended at the top of a stick.

... e la mia l'è coi fiocchi mentre la tua l'è coi pidocchi... [quanto siamo coloriti]

Certo che ormai le vendono con le lucine a batteria per non fargli prendere fòco... stanno uccidendo anche 'sta festa :(

Other infos about rificolona: Other boys with a blowpipe try to hit the "rificolona" lamps to fire them... the guys with lamp who fire are considered lucky but often they cry for having lost the toy ;D
