Document 1 : In the street. (2’58).

A boy expressly goes into the streets after the New Year’s family midnight festivities to use fireworks. For many people, fireworks have to be used down in the street. It is a way of investing and appropriating the street as the space of noise at this moment. O. Féraud, 2008.


Document 2 : A few minutes of the Quartieri Spagnoli resounding at midnight. Some vocal reactions to firecracker’s detonations can be heard (2’26).

Midnight is marked by a great detonation that can be heard at mark 38 second of the recording.
