Within the events that take place every year in Fabriano since 1995 in the month of June on the occasion of the Palio di San Giovanni Battista (news of a Palio in Fabriano are reported in the Municipal Statute of 1436), is a competition on the art of the Infiorata between the infioratori of the four town districts (being part of the National Association of Artistic Infiorate "Infioritalia").
In the cloisters and squares of the historic center, places of the historical re-enactment of the fourteenth Century of Fabriano (the city’s golden age), are every year realized for the patron feast beautiful floral carpets as a testimony of collective, religious and folk art.
