The Infiorate were a simple proof of devotion. The faithfuls, on the occasion of Corpus Christi, used to decorate, with flowers and herbs, the floor of the streets where the procession would pass. In Spello this tradition has reached a sublime technical and artistic level.
Every year the event surpasses itself, for commitment, magic, quality and quantity of the carpets. All this thanks to the work, the passion and the competition between the groups.
An added value is that a realization so ephemeral as an Infiorata (which lasts few hours), involves constant work and commitment throughout the year and, of course, it becomes more and more intense during the months close to the event .
