We love our fireworks here at US Fireworks, but the people of Malta really love fireworks! Fireworks have two historical traditions. The Italian tradition and the Oriental Tradition.
Fireworks made in the Oriental Tradition have become the standard commercial style of fireworks because the cost to manufacturer is lower. Therefore, the Italian style shells are very rare and seldom seen in the USA.
What makes Italian style fireworks unique is that they use cylindrical construction, rather then spherical construction.
A photo of a Maltese style shell being constructed can be seen below:
Each year the China Pavilion in Epcot has a Chinese New Year celebration. Usually there are Chinese acrobats and special activities for kids. The next Chinese New Year will be on January 23, 2012.
1749 George II’s display
This is the famous fireworks display that George Frideric Handel composed his “Music for the Royal Fireworks”.
The firework display was for the benefit of King George II of Great Britain to celebrate the signing of the treaty at Aix la Chapelle in 1748 marking the end of the War of Austrian Succession. Unfortunately, during the display, one of the fireworks landed on the pavilion of the Temple of Peace, igniting the several thousand fireworks inside and killing three spectators.
