(www.italianways.com). According to italy magazine
(italymagazine.com), there are three big Infiorata Festivals in Italy. They are held in Noto, Genzano and Spello. Genzano is located in the suburbs of Rome and the festival over there is pretty well known.
This is a festival that takes place every single year. Many of local artists participate in this festival to cover the surface of street (via Belardi) with flower carpets.
Most of pictures drawn with petals on the street are from religious paintings and famous artworks. Infiorata usually starts with harvesting milions of flowers several hours before the event begins. Harvested flowers must be stored in good conditions to keep them fresh while the local artists draw their masterpieces on the pavement of Via Belardi (Belardi Street).
This flower festival began back in 1778 when some citizens decorated part of the street to celebrate Corpus Domini Parade. You can see how this festival is held and understand its atmosphere by viewing THIS VIDEO on YouTube
Recently we can find similar festivals even in Japan
. However its scale and the level of arts is much behind compared with Italian infiorata. California Flower Art Academy
