  • Description

    Rome, Italy.

    Full titles read: "THE WORLD FAMOUS FLOWER CARPETS OF GENZANO - Record crowds flock to see annual contest held every year since 1778. Many tons of multi-coloured flowers are used."

    L/S looking down street of crowds of people. Many people in the centre of the street carry large baskets full of flower petals which they sprinkle onto the road to form patterns and designs. C/U's and M/S's of the street art and of someone spraying water onto the petals. Nice M/S's of design which looks like St Peter's Cathedral. Several more shots of the designs including one very menacing looking one of Benito Mussolini.
