    Savonarola now resumed his sermons on 17 February and was thus unjustifiably disobedient to ecclesiastical authority. What an astonishing prophetic character was Savonarola! Instead of Lorenzo, Florence had Piero de Medici, but he failed to react well enough or even competently to keep power; suddenly Florence had a gap at the top of its government. The Dominican reformer came from an old family of Ferrara.

Representatives from both orders met in the piazza on April 7,but the contest was delayed by squabbles over what items the contestants could carry into the fire with them, and a rainstorm finally led to the cancellation of the event.
