Bolsena : “Infiorata” of Corpus Domini. To pay homage to the Miracle of Bolsena, the Feast of Corpus Domini is celebrated every year on the second Sunday after Whit Sunday. The carpet of flowers is laid on the procession route using petals of flowers from gardens and from surrounding fields. The various colours include those of roses, carnations, hydrangeas and broom contrasting with those of poppies, wild onions, acacias. Flower designs are made with collaboration of volunteer helpers.
