ROME: 40,000 FLOWERS FROM HOLLAND FOR ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS SQUARES IN THE WORLD

Truly spectacular, this year, the floral decoration of St. Peter’s Square in Rome on the occasion of the Easter celebrations, on Sunday March 31. For the 28th consecutive year Flower Council of Holland created the impressive floral show to welcome the new Pope Francesco. The varieties most represented were white roses (3,000), daffodils (10,000 more than 6000 different colors yellow) and lilies (600). And, of course, the inevitable tulips in 20,000 various shades. A total of about 40,000 between plants, flowering branches and cut flowers were used to decorate St. Peter’s Square, the staircase and the central loggia. This  tradition began in 1985. And also on the last Sunday, skilled hands and great creativity celebrated one of the most famous squares in the world.
