A Città della Pieve (PG) ogni anno, in occasione dei festeggiamenti in onore di S. Luigi Gonzaga (1568-1591), Patrono del I° Terziere Casalino della cittadina, viene realizzata L’Infiorata Artistica di San Luigi Gonzaga.

La peculiarità dell’Infiorata di San Luigi, che giungerà il 24 Giugno 2012 alla sua 46a edizione, è quella di avere, dalla fine degli anni ’90, un tema conduttore delle opere disegnate sui selciati. Il tema cambia di anno in anno, e per il 2012 sarà “Arte Sacra nel territorio del Terziere“: i maestri infioratori, nella notte tra il 23 (inizio ore 21:00) ed il 24, comporranno tappeti raffiguranti alcuni quadri presenti nelle chiese del Terziere Casalino.
Per queste vere e proprie opere d’arte, distribuite lungo i 340 metri della via principale del paese, via Pietro Vannucci, si utilizzano solo i fiori selvatici che si trovano nel tipico paesaggio umbro (ginestra, acacia, lupinella, ecc.) raccolti nei giorni precedenti da gruppi di volontari.

Dal 14 al 17 e nei giorni 19, 22 e 23 Giugno 2012 dalle ore 20:00 sarà aperta la tradizionale “Taverna del Barbacane”. E sempre la Taverna ospiterà, il 21 Giugno 2012, l’8a edizione de “Il gusto dei fiori” – cena a base di essenze e fiori (prenotazione obbligatoria, numero indicato nel programma). Inoltre nei due giorni dell’Infiorata sarà possibile visitare la mostra mercato di prodotti artigianali e florovivaistici “Giardini Fioriti nella patria del Perugino”.
