INFIORATA!

As I look at the flowers I planted just a few weeks ago nibbled by bunnies and looking a bit sparse, I am inspired to try again as I see the Flower Festival in Genzano celebrating the Corpus Christus Feast yesterday! For over two centuries, the community has created a beautiful floral “carpet” that looks like a mosaic made from fresh flower petals and placed painstakingly on chalk drawn designs. The culmination of the festival occurs when a masked parade walks the street wearing medieval and traditional clothes. This photo was from 2012 and found at www.travelvivi.com.
