The Bonfire of Vanities
Nicole Mormelo Tb 1/4
Who were part of/ effected by The Bonfire of Vanities?
Supporters of the Dominican priest, Girolamo Savonarola, collected and publicly burned thousands of works of art, cosmetics and books.
The leaders of this event were the supporters and the Dominican priest himself.
The victims that were effected by all the destruction, were the people who enjoyed the luxuries of those objects.
Where did this take place?
The bonfire took place in Florence Italy.
How is this cultural genocide?
This is cultural genocide because one group destroyed another groups luxuries. One group didn't think that what they were doing was right. They took it into their own hands and the Dominican priest's supporters gathered the "vanities" and publicly burned the other groups belongings.
