Infiorata del Corpus Domini, Brugnato, Italy

Video of a Spring Flower Festival in Liguria

Corpus Domini is a Catholic celebration held 9 weeks after Easter. Infiorata is a festival of "flower carpets" usually associated with Corpus Domini.

Early in the morning in Brugnato, Italy, residents begin to fill the streets of the historic center with carpets of flowers in home-grown designs, which will provide the path for a procession after the evening mass at about 9pm.

We were on hand to video the preparations for the Infiorata in Brugnato, a village in Liguria.

Where to Stay in Brugnato

Brugnato is a small village with some good restaurants that relies mostly on B&Bs outside the historic center, like Il Vecchio Noce and Il Nido Nella Bionda, two inexpensive lodging options.

The other option is to stay in the nearby Cinque Terre. Monterosso is only 20 minutes away and has quite a few hotels, but they're more expensive than staying in Brugnato.
