The Infiorata di Noto in Sicily

ALL THINGS SICILIAN

Villas near Noto >>

The Infiorata di Noto, one of the most colourful festivals anywhere in the world, takes place every year over the third weekend of May.

For two and a half days, Via Nicolaci, one of Noto's many delightful streets, is taken over by local and foreign artists who work together on a set theme to create a kaleidoscopic carpet of petal mosaics using flowers grown especially for the event.

They set up shop and begin work on their allotted pieces of pavement on Friday and the "exhibition" is open to allcomers on Saturday and Sunday.

A variety of other activities, including parades and sideshows, add to the general carnival atmosphere and the delightful, ingenious Baroque palazzi and churches of Noto provide a perfect backdrop.

Monday morning is the day of the town's children, who are let loose to run through the temporary artworks in a symbolic display of destruction and renewal.

Part celebration of Spring, part homage to Noto's virtuosic artistic heritage, the festival provides an excellent excuse for a mid-May getaway.

The perfect place to stay while experiencing all this? One of our villas near Noto of course!
