“L'Infiorata”, or the art of decorating streets and squares with flowers, with mosaic-like designs formed with flower petals, is in general and especially in central Italy, an ancient tradition tied to “il Corpus Dominus”. The “infiorata” in the beautiful baroque city of Noto in Sicily, is a slightly more pagan variant, welcoming “la Primavera” (the springtime) with large flower compositions that fill the streets with happiness and joy.
