Infiorata not only in Spello!

Infiorata

Infiorata

Yes i know, we’ve got the seasons all mixed up winter is approaching fast but i thought why not upload some pictures of things to look forward to?

As you might know the month of May is the time that a lot of villages in Umbria organise there infiorata. In short infiorata means making art out of flowers. The one in Spello is world famous and rightly so. We get guests who rent one of our houses to have a look at the spettacolo, but it is not the only one!

To my utmost surprise even the village at the bottom of the hill on wich i live had organised a mini infiorata.  There were two fresco’s. One near the church and one along the mainroad. Apparently creating these flowery works of art is getting more popular each year! Make no mistake, these pieces won’t tolerate heavy winds and creating them requires some very deft and steady hands  And what about collecting all these flowers and selecting the colours……..    Fabulous!

Deft handwork required!
