Artez mural in Acquapendente, Italy 2019-08-15

Artez mural in Acquapendente, Italy

This mural by Artez was inspired by the large mosaics of flowers and leaves (2.6m wide and 3.6m in hight), called “Pugnaloni”, that are made in honor of the Madonna del Fiore, which is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of May.

This ancient tradition dates back to 1166 and the time when people of Acquapendente rebelled against tyranny.

Nowadays, more than eight centuries later, hundreds of people divided in teams gather every year in order to keep the tradition alive and compete in creating the most beautiful “Pugnaloni”!

Title: “Preparing for Pugnaloni”
