The most famous Bonfire of the Vanities occurred on February 7, 1497, when followers of the monk Girolamo Savonarola collected and publicly burned thousands of objects in Florence, during the celebration of Mardi Gras. This destruction was intended to eliminate those items that are considered sinful, including vanity items such as mirrors, makeup, fine clothes, including musical instruments. It also aimed immoral books, manuscripts of secular songs and pictures. Among the objects destroyed during this campaign were several original paintings on classical mythological subjects by Sandro Botticelli made, made by him at the stake. These fires were not invented by Savonarola, but that it was a usual accompaniment to outdoor sermons of Bernardino of Siena in the first half of the century.
