According to the legend the famous Florentine leader Pazzino dei Pazzi was the first to put the Christian flag on the towers of Jerusalem in 1099. Godfrey of Bouillon rewarded his courage with some stones of the Santo Sepolcro, the Holy Tomb. Pazzino dei Pazzi brought these stones to Florence and the Bishop of Florence used them to light the Holy Fire on Easter Saturday for the christian Florentines. The dei Pazzi family kept this tradition alive with a cart that was set on fire with the sacred stones of Jerusalem.
