lightning strikes the Porta a Pinti

1493

August 6

on Sunday

There was a furious storm, the air seeming for some time to be full of bursting fireworks, so incessant was the thunder and lightning. When the storm was over, about eight different places were counted which bore visible traces of having been struck. One was the Campanile of Santa Croce; another the Porta a Pinti, etc. But it did not cause much damage, and no one was killed.
