Infiorata di Noto

Third weekend of May


The highlight of the event calendar at Noto is the ‘infiorata’. For two and a half days, Via Nicolaci, is taken over by artists from around the world to create a kaleidoscopic carpet of petal mosaics using flowers grown especially for the event.

Work begins on Friday and opens to the public on Saturday and Sunday. A variety of parades and sideshows scattered throughout town add to the carnival atmosphere.

Come Monday morning the town’s children are let loose to run through the temporary artworks in a symbolic display of destruction and renewal. A celebration of Spring and homage to Noto’s artistic heritage, the festival provides an excellent excuse for a mid-May getaway.
