Time: end of May, beginning of June.
At the end of May, the iris festival takes place in Florence — it is called Piazzale Michelangelo. At this time, Giardino dell'Iris opens here — the "Garden of Irises", which functions for about two weeks, allowing everyone to enjoy the variety of shapes, colors and aromas of this flower.
In Italy, two more flower festivals are held:
In mid-January, in San Remo,
In the suburbs of Rome, on the eve of Corpus Christi, June 6.
The Sanremo Festival is a lavish parade of flower carriages. The festival in Genzano di Roma, a small town near the Italian capital, is called Infiorata. During it, the main street of the town is almost completely hidden under a floral carpet.
The spectacle of a street completely "woven" with flower petals, stretching from the central square to the Genzano Cathedral, will not leave anyone indifferent. Moreover, the masters do not just lay out ornaments — reproductions of famous paintings and icons come out of the hands of local talents.
