#303 I miss maggio

Il mese di maggio (‘May’), the month of roses and cherries, the month dedicated to the virgin Mary…

In the city of Noto, Sicily, they use flowers for the spectacular infiorata 

Calendimaggio, or Canto del Maggio is an ancient feast to celebrate Spring, farmers used to celebrate with dance and songs, i canti del maggio, 

From that tradition orginated the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino festival
