Sanremoinfiore 2013: Flowers, Riviera and a hint of holidays
The event will start at 10.00 am and continue into the first hours of the afternoon. On 10th March, after the end of the Music Festival, Sanremo goes back to being the capital of flowers.
It comes back the famous competition of “Carri Fioriti” (little cars with fantastic flower compositions), an event dating back to 1904 for its first edition with the name of “Feast of Flora Goddess”.
During the years the event changed its name many times (Flowers Battle, Italy in Flower until the actual name “Corso Fiorito”).
Now the event is one of most important touristic attraction for the town of Sanremo.
Each year the streets of the town are crowded by thousands of fans from everywhere that, taking advantage of the event, can do the first holiday of the year in Italian Riviera.
This year the theme of the event will be the “Man in the space”. The round-route will be between lungomare Calvino, piazzale Dapporto, the old Railway Station, the cycle track and finally the Vittorio Veneto gardens.
For those who will decide to spend the weekend in Liguria, the city will be enlivened by music entertainment and several shows in its streets and squares, starting from Saturday 9th March.
