GĦARB INFIORATA

25/07/2018 - 29/07/2018
GĦARB INFIORATA

The Local Council, in collaboration with the Għarb Feast Committee, will once again be organising the Infiorata cultural event.

‘Infiorata’ is an initiative introduced by the Għarb Local Council and which has been held on a yearly basis since 2003.

The ‘Infiorata’ is laid on the church parvis and consists of a carpet made of fresh flowers petals and leaves cut in small pieces and arranged together to form various thematic designs.

The ‘Infiorata’ is an old Italian tradition, the oldest one originating in ‘Gerano’ the twinned village of Għarb which is found in the outskirts of Rome Italy. This tradition in Gerano dates back to around the 17th Century.

The team in Għarb start working on the design weeks before the feast and on Sunday, the Feast day, a group of local volunteers made up of young children and adults, gather together on the church parvis at around 14.00hrs to start intricate work on the laying of flowers.
