Genzano is a typical town of the Castelli, along Lake Nemi, historically part of the Papal States and therefore governed by different important papal families.
But is internationally known for its "infiorata", 2000 square meters of drawings made from flower petals during the feast of Corpus Christi. The festival dates back to 1778, but the custom of using flowers to adorn the streets arose much earlier.
The tradition began in Rome, in the Baroque period when the Vatican florists prepared floral paintings on the floors of St. Peter on the day of St. Peter and Paul. Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the great architect, sculptor and also organizer of lavish parties, created some.
From Rome this custom moved Genzano and today it is the most impressive example of this artistic expression, spreading across an area of 2000 square meters along the Via Belardi.
