FLOWER FESTIVAL

GOODMORNINGMYFRIENDS

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all direction. 
Chanakya 


If you ever plan to visit Italy during the month of June, reserve at least a day for the town of Genzano, to see the famous Infiorata Flower Festival. Each year, during the month of June, local artists cover the entire street of Belardo with a floral carpet with patterns inspired by religious art, shapes and famous paintings.

For more than 2 centuries (from 1778) on Sunday and Monday following Corpus Christus feast the Infiorata a most suggestive manifestation of art, pride of the artists of Genzano has taken place. Each year the artists suggestions must conform to a previously agreed upon theme, such as The Colours of Michelangelo, or The Designs of Bernini.

The carpet stays for two full days. On the third day, their work is demolished by local schoolchildren, who are permitted to wreak havoc!
