We have a carousel just below our window. Above is the new one they installed there a week ago and below is what the old one looked like on the night of December 8th. I'm just happy it didn't happen a couple of hours earlier when the square was full of people!
The firefighters put out the fire in just a couple of minutes.
This is one of the Christmas presents I'm giving my husband this year. Yes, because in Italy we don't have just one number for all emergencies! Even though the European parliament has decided that 112 should be the emergency number for all of Europe, Italy still has separate numbers for calling the police, firefighters, hospital etc... And as you can imagine, we had no clue what number to call whe we discovered the fire and lost several minutes looking for it. But not anymore! :)
