The picturesque village is home to an annual event of the most colorful. The Infiorata takes over the streets of Spello, which during the festival are carpeted with beautiful flowers depicting religious scenes.
The floral display is the culmination of several months preparatory work, which culminates with the Corpus Christi procession, when the flowers are brought down from the slopes of Mount Subasio. The people of Spello then work through the night creating 60 carpets, most of about 12 sqm and some up to 35 sqm.
