Infiorata di San Luigi Gonzaga

This very beautiful and particular yearly celebration is in honour of St. Luigi Gonzaga, Patron of the Casalino Quarter, and since the Middle Ages had involved adorning the main street of the city with “paintings” made with colourful and fragrant flower petals.  The evening before the festival, the inhabitants of the Casalino quarter cover the pavement of via Pietro Vannucci with carpets of perfectly placed flower petals for all to admire until the following evening.  The event is enlivened with music.
