Monsummano Terme in fiori – a spring flower festival

Monsummano Terme piazza flower festival

Every weekend in Tuscany brings another festival for something or other – an excuse for the community to congregate in a local piazza, browse local products and munch on brigidini and other local treats, perhaps with a game of tombola thrown in. This time the spotlight fell on Michele’s home town, Monsummano Terme, which celebrated the arrival of spring with ‘la piazza in fiori’, a flower festival which turned the town’s main square into a fragrant patchwork of aromatic herbs, cheerful bedding plants and miniature olive trees.

After a day working in the field we popped by to admire the flowers and pick up some pots of Lavender, followed by the obligatory visit to the magnificent Gelataria Filippo (a great gelateria in the land of great gelaterie).
