For centuries, fireworks have fascinated entire generations of enthusiasts and not. There are infinite types of them, as the only limit is given by the imagination of the pyrotechnic who makes them (in compliance with the relevant legal regulations). Essentially, pyrotechnic devices are divided into two large families:
the fires on the ground and the fires in the air.
Ground fires are fires designed to operate at ground level. Generally they have a luminous effect (such as pinwheels, fountains, pyrotechnic cascades) or sound (such as firecrackers and thunderous batteries of honor). Used for street shows especially in southern Italy, they allow you to create pyrotechnic choreographies even in points where it is not possible to shoot the largest aerial fires.
Air fires are precisely fires designed to operate in the air, once a certain height from the ground is reached, through a launch charge in the case of mortar artifices or by a propulsive charge in the case of rockets. In particular, mortar devices, the most used in Italian pyrotechnics, are divided into two other major categories: cylindrical bombs and spherical bombs. Spherical bombs have precisely a spherical shape and draw perfectly circular openings in the sky. Cylindrical bombs, on the other hand, can have the most disparate effects and even contain other fireworks that explode or open as appropriate. The Neapolitan pyrotechnicians have perfected their knowledge of cylindrical bombs to such an extent over the years that they are able to create multi-opening bombs that have become famous all over the world. The shooting bombs.
These are incredibly long large-caliber bombs capable of drawing multiple timed openings once a certain height is reached.
Ground fires and aerial fires thus give the pyrotechnic overall the ability to design any type of show, even by combining the two types of fires, creating ground-air shows, creating amazing choreographic and sound effects.
