Corpus Domini, which is also known as Corpus Christi is a Catholic feast day in honour of the Eucharist. It is an event which is celebrated all over Italy with Infiorate/flower displays on the streets made with petals, from fresh flowers where possible but augmented with paper ones.
Whilst Marta’s celebration of the event may not be one of the larger events that take place in Italy, it is still something that many people in our little town are proud to take part in.
I decided the best way to share this civic pride shown by our residents was to make a slideshow of the event we attended on June 26th. The slideshow shows the preparation of the route through the town and then follows the procession as it walks through the streets of Marta.

This is the second in a series which I hope to participate in from time to time, welcome to anyone who has called by from this new fun theme.
