Infiorata del Corpus DominiFor the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, the Infiorate take place in the district of Porta Perlici and Santa Maria degli Angeli. They consist in creating, on the roads along the processional route, natural carpets made from flower petals representing decorative, religious and Eucaristic themes.
The composition of the flower carpets is subject to strict rules: they must be made exclusively with fresh flowers, or dried and milled flowers, herbs and shrubs that are not wood. Flowers and plant materials cannot be artificially colored. The use of fresh flowers and plants should prevail in regards to those dried. Water is allowed to be used in order to maintain the floral pieces moist and prevent them from drying rapidly; sawdust, flour, powdered coffee, protected plants and flowers are forbidden.
