Tuscan and Umbrian villages and cities come alive in the late spring and early summer celebrating religious, historic and just for fun festivals. Off the beaten tourist track, little Spello on the SS75 route between Assisi and Foligno in Umbria will display its religious devotion on the ninth Sunday after Easter [June 21 and 22, 2014] by carpeting itself in street art made entirely of flower petals. The Infiorate di Spello is an annual competitive team event. Imagine the beauty and artistic skill required to produce such fragile, transient masterpieces!
