Infiorata in Verbicaro

 20 min.

In the days between July 1 and 2 is held in Verbicaro the traditional Infiorata, linked to the feast of Madonna delle Grazie. The Calabria has always been a very religious land, and the infiorata day is held in many countries of the region during the feast of Corpus Christi. In the mountain village a few kilometres from Scalea preparations for the Infiorata begin months earlier, instead of flowers are used specially prepared mats for the feast and on which the statue of the Madonna will be the first to walk. The carpets are precisely what makes typical and characteristic the Infiorata of Verbicaro, which has become over the years an anniversary dedicated to a religious audience and also to a group of people passionate about arts and crafts related to the manufacture of carpets.
