    SHORT HISTORY OF INFIORATA DI NOTO

    Infiorata di Noto 2024Infiorata di Noto was born 40 years ago, when the Noto floral artists met the ones from Genzano, part of the Metropolitan City of Rome, where this pictorial technique was developed.

    Starting with 1980, every year, in the third weekend of May, Noto, the Stone Garden, as it was called by the historian Cesare Brandi, welcomes in the heart of its historical center an explosion of color and perfume.

    On this occasion, Via Corrado Nicolaci, which measures 122 meters in lenght and 7 meters in width, is divided into 16 sectors of 6 by 4 meters.

    The street represents the canvas on which the artists carefully paint with flowers, and the resulted floral carpet covers an area of about 700 square meters.

    The theme of the festival changes every year, and is usually inspired from religion, mythology, art or local folklore.
