Background: Highlight of the Genzano (near Rome,Italy) flower festival is the carpet of flowers covering one whole street. Local artists fashion reproductions of religious and secular paintings with flower petals of flowers in the rod and along the pavement. The 'masterpieces' live for a day, then as evening (June 18) comes, the feet of worshippers emerging from the local Church scatter them.
The flower festival, held each June when the flower are at their most prolific, attracts many tourists, Italian as well as foreign.
