FLORA International Flower Festival celebrates its third edition from October 18 to 27, 2019.
For the third consecutive year, the city of Córdoba has become a focus of international attention for 10 days and an object of desire for amateurs and experts in floral installations. The editions of the previous years had a good result adding between both 600,000 visits. This year, FLORA once again selects some of the most outstanding artists of floral installations in the world, who during the previous months visit the city and are inspired by their courtyards for the creation of very special works.
The theme of this edition takes us hand in hand to new places: “The trip”. FLORA invites artists to travel and travel to those who visit their floral facilities. The courtyards of Córdoba thus become, by the hand of this festival and the best floral artists in the world, as a gateway to new places and looks.
This is an international proposal since only one Spanish artist participates in each edition and, as such, it becomes the best showcase in the world every October to learn about trends in floral installations. The authors selected to participate in FLORA stand out not only for their quality and international recognition, but for projecting an artistic look on the floral, beyond the merely decorative or festive.
The artists reinterpret the Cordovan courtyards from different points of view, cultural factors and contexts. An unprecedented cultural exchange is proposed between a space as traditional as the Cordovan patios and an art as contemporary and surprising as that of floral installations, a friendly dialogue between tradition and innovation that has already become a must for the Spanish cultural agenda .
