21-22-23 of June in the town of Genzano di Roma is , the annual flower festival is held in the vicinity of Rome "Infiorata". This is a beautiful holiday, when one of the central streets of the city spread vast carpets of flowers. The total area of ​​flower carpets is 2000 sq.m. First Infiorata Genzano in the city dates back to 1824, according to other sources in 1778 year. The idea of ​​decorating with fresh flowers originated in the 17th century, when the day of St. Peter and Paul Vatican Basilica was decorated with a mosaic of colors. In those days, laid out plots on religious themes, these were added reproductions of paintings by famous artists, such as Salvador Dali, Joan Miro.
The day before the holiday, the townspeople gather to prepare the petals of flowers (all carpets takes more than 350,000 colors!), Which are then sent to the cool storage. The next day begins drawing the picture on the asphalt and filling flower mosaic. And soon come to life before the eyes of the picture. The purity and brightness of colors give natural materials: carnation petals (red, orange, beige, white color), vetch (purple), galega (sky blue), fennel greens, hot pepper seeds, ground corn, rice, etc. Teams are working tirelessly, carefully laying a floral mosaic and constantly sprinkling his work from a large spray bottle, because this carpet is not easy to maintain in the June heat for 2-3 days, when passes Infiorata feast.
My husband and I visited the festival last year, and I can not help but to share experiences and to hint to anyone who does not know how to spend this weekend
