Le Infiorate di Spello, Umbria

Spello’s Infiorate is a manifestation which takes place every year in the small Umbrian town of Spello (Italy) on the occasion of the Corpus Domini feast, on the ninth Sunday after Easter. On that night, almost a thousand people work incessantly to create carpets and pictures made of flowers along the narrow town’s streets. The floral creations cover streets throughout the historical centre in preparation to the passage of the Blessed Sacrament carried in procession by the bishop on Sunday morning. The result is a unique one mile-long path of beautiful floral creations with an explosion of colours and scents.

When I was a child, I've been many times to L'infiorata di Spello, since my mum is from Umbria region... So beautiful! And sooo tasty the Porchetta too!
There are also many similar celebrations in Spain too, maybe if our mutual friend Franciscoc is reading us will shed some lights about those common traditions!

I think our two threads on this same Forum section have so much in common! We both love to show interesting and beautiful corners of our country (I assume you're Italian too, right?) but I have to admit your thread is really mindblowing and overwhelming! Ammappate oh!

You're really tireless! What a big and amazing thread! Congratulations and thank you!

Thanks for your kind words.

Yes I'm Italian and, like you, I'm in love with our Country and want to share its beauty with as much people as possible. Italy is a place on Earth where everyone can find something interesting and mesmerizing: nature, landscapes, architecture and art in general.

You' re doing a GREAT work with your thread on the Milanese and Lombardy areas, and I'm doing as best I as I can for the rest of Italy too.

Italy has contributed so much for the birth and growth of the western civilization from the Roman times to the Renaissance, from science to art and architecture, from poetry to literature, from food to fashion and so on , that I think two threads won't be enough to show all this stuff.

Keep on with your work, feel free to contribute to my thread every time you want and together let's make all the others know how is living in one of the most extraordinary country in the world !!:

The National Churches in Rome

ROMA by Massimiliano Teodori, su Flickr

There are more than 900 churches in Rome that can be defined the city with the highest number of these buildings in the world. Their history has gone by with the history of this city for seventeen centuries.

Among all these churches there are the National Churches standing out as representatives of the richness and importance of their own nations. There are churches from nations in Africa(3) , Americas ( 7) , Asia ( 2), Europe ( 41) and Middle East ( 5).

Charitable institutions attached to churches in Rome were founded right through the medieval period and included hospitals, hostels and others providing assistance to pilgrims to Rome from a certain "nation", which thus became these nations' national churches in Rome. These institutions were generally organised as confraternities and funded through charity and legacies from rich benefactors belonging to that "nation". Often also they were connected to national "scholae" (ancestors of Rome's seminaries), where the clergymen were trained. The churches and their riches were a sign of the importance of their nation and of the prelates that supported them. Up to 1870 and Italian unification, these national churches also included twenty-four churches of the Italian regions ( regional churches).


Here are shown some of them.



Chiesa di Santa Maria dell'Anima - Austria and Germany One of the three German national churches in Rome

Santa Maria dell'Anima (English: Our Lady of the Soul) is a Roman Catholic church in central Rome, Italy, just west of the Piazza Navona and near the Santa Maria della Pace church. It was founded during the course of the 14th century by Dutch merchants, who at that time belonged to the Holy Roman Empire. In the course of the 15th century, it became the national church of the whole Holy Roman Empire in Rome and henceforth the national church of Germany and hospice of German-speaking people in Rome.

Chiesa di San Girolamo dei Croati - Croatia

Saint Jerome of the Croats is the national Catholic church of Croatia on Via Tomacelli in the Campus Martius of Rome.It was first built in 1585-1587 for refugees from areas ruled by the Turks, and dedicated to St Jerome, who was from Dalmatia (former Roman "Illiricum"). The site had been given to them in 1453 (the year of the Fall of Constantinople) by Pope Nicholas V, for the construction of a hospice. It once faced the port built on the Tiber River, called the Porto di Ripetta.
It is now a chapel of the Pontifical Croatian College of Saint Jerome in Rome and is only open to visitors by arrangement with the College

Chiesa di San Luigi dei Francesi - Francia One of the five French national churches in Rome

The Church of St. Louis of the French is a Roman Catholic church in Rome, not far from Piazza Navona. The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, to St. Denis the Areopagite and St. Louis IX, king of France. The church was designed by Giacomo della Porta and built by Domenico Fontana between 1518 and 1589, and completed through the personal intervention of Catherine de' Medici, who donated to it some property in the area. It is the national church in Rome of France
The church's most famous treasure is the cycle of paintings in the Contarelli Chapel, painted by the Baroque master Caravaggio in 1599-1600 about the life of St. Matthew

It was on the site of the former palazzo Ruccellai, bought in 1733 for 25474 Roman scudi by Father Lorenzo of the Trinitarian Order, in the name of the provinces of Castiglia, Leon and Navarre. Shortly afterwards the foundation was placed under the protection of the Spanish crown.

The church has a concave facade with statues of the order's two founders saint John of Matha and saint Felix of Valois and the coat of arms of Philip V of Spain.

Beautiful photos, beautiful country .

Italians truly care about their country and have many regulations/rules to preserve the authenticity of the cities. Wish it would be the same where I come from.

In San Luigi dei Francesi church in Rome, the French National church (dedicated st. Louis King of France), you can find three of the very best Caravaggio paintings in Rome, together with the Cerasi chapel in Santa Maria del Popolo church this is an unskippable step over for the Caravaggio route in Rome, for the many, many lovers of the other Michelangelo
