Infiorata is a decoration done on the floor made of flowers. It is usually done to celebrate a catholic event. Thanks to buzz in Rome, I knew of an infiorata which was near San Pietro.
Some petals flew by as the wind blew
It happened that it was the patron saint’s day of Rome on the 29th of June and is a public holiday, so a number of shops were closed.
In any case, when we reached there, it was already late afternoon. I was excited to see the infiorata thinking that it would be as grand as the one in Genzano. It wasn’t. Nevertheless, it was interesting to see.
While coloured rice wasn’t used, the decorations reminds me a lot of the decorations that are done during deepavali. I liked seeing the vivid hues.
I think this one used coloured salts instead of flowers.
In the end, I enjoyed looking at the demonstrations. I find it interesting that there are similar cultures between countries.
