Respecting Animals: Town in Italy Switches to Silent Fireworks

The use of traditional fireworks can cause distress to animals due to the loud noises they produce. Pets and other animals may suffer from heart problems, nausea, tremors, fear, and stress during fireworks displays. The town of Collecchio in Italy has introduced legislation requiring the use of silent fireworks as a way of minimizing animal distress. Setti Fireworks, a local company, has developed silent fireworks that produce a spectacular light show without the deafening sounds associated with traditional fireworks. The use of silent fireworks in Collecchio is a step towards more animal-friendly celebrations and could serve as an example for other communities to follow.
