The Incredible Flower Carpets of the Giorzano Infiorata

0

Made using millions of flower petals, the flower carpets of the Gionzano Infiorata, a flower festival unique in the world, cover an entire street. If you're in Rome, in the second week of June, this is a must-see.

The Genzano Infiorata is a flower festival that can be traced back to 1778. Every year, local artists cover an entire street (Via Belardi) with intricate flower carpets, inspired by famous artworks, religious paintings or geometrical shapes. The flower carpets are made by talented local artists who have to stick to a previously agreed upon theme, like ‘The Colors of Michelangelo’ or ‘The Designs of Bernini’.

Ricky is right! And I've been there. It is so unbelievably gorgeous and the communion that follows is very moving. I suggest you go!

As far as I know it isn't "unique in the world". I think this custom is quite extended. For instance in Sitges, near Barcelona they have this festival. You can see an example here: http://enjoysitges.blogspot.com/2008/05/alfombras-de-flores-en-las-calles-de.html
