The historic town of Spello, one of the most visited medieval towns in Umbria, just few km away from Assisi, is hosting the “Infiorata” — June 1-2, 2013 — its annual festival of floral decorations.
A visit to Spello during the Infiorata festival, give you the chance to admire floral compositions, representing liturgical figures and ornamental motifs, decorating the ancient streets of this unique hill-top town.
This religious art event celebrating Corpus Christi offers visitors the chance to enjoy gorgeous colors and flowers fragrances in the streets as well as to attend a number of flowers themed events taking place throughout the week ending the Corpus Christi day.

Also, visitors can take advantage of guided visits, on Saturday night and Sunday morning, to the sites displaying the most notable floral decorations as well as to the many Spello’s art sites.
Best of all, attending Saturday night to the “Notte dei fiori” — Flowers Night — a night vigil with flower artists preparing their compositions on the streets floor making use of millions of scented flower petals.
