Every year in June the streets of Spello shimmer with all colours of the rainbow, a spectacle due to the work of artists
who have made over the time a real art of the design of the "Infiorate'', that are
patterns and ornaments made of petals on the ground. It is a cleverly devised
procedure which requires from the performers much experience and extensive
preparative work as well as a strong sense for harmony and beauty. Those are
just some of the elements that distinguish the "Infiorate'' of Spello from
similar events in other towns. The streets of Spello and the marvellous
palazzos glow in all colour shades and the designs carried out with selected
petals from the Monte Subasio are a really unforgettable experience.
Since some years Spello's experiences in the design of the floral carpets are
collected and exhibited in the Museo delle Infiorate. The different
phases of preparation are documented there in photographs and drawings, as well
as the sketches and the most beautiful works of the artists and masters, who
create every year these short-lived works, that sure enough will not be
forgotten by those who were so lucky to see them.
