Infiorata of Casatori


Since 1996, on the occasion of the festivities in honour of Our Lady of Sorrows, Patroness of the Parish Community, the Infiorata is held on the third Sunday of September, in the pretty little hamlet of Casatori in S. Valentino Torio (SA).

Founded with the intention to bring our small town in Agro to the attention of the experts in the field of agriculture and commerce, and to place it on the artistic and cultural itineraries.
At the centre of the hamlet, floral carpets are realized, inspired by various religious themes or famous paintings and sculptures, celebrating the mystery of the Virgin Mary and Christ her Son.
  These carpets have resulted from the tradition of the faithful who, in the procession of sacred images, used to sprinkle the streets with flowers and leaves.  This ritual, no longer datable, was thought to harmonize all in creating these beautiful rugs, on display to visitors and tourists alike, who admire the millions of well-coordinated petals, in a wide variety of colours.
