Genoa is a city full of history and culture, deeply connected to its most ancient traditions.
First of all the Nativity scene tradition, which was born in the early XVII century and it has developed in an extraordinary way: for this reason Genoa, as Naples, became one of the most active centre for the production of crèche figures. Moreover, the Genoese Nativity scene, thanks to its ancient and strong traditions, has come to be highly regarded, and it also brought to life a real school in the 18th century.
The “Time for Crèche”'s program, which enhance the rich Genoese Nativity scene's tradition, provides many suggestive proposals. The preparation of different types of historical and artistic Nativity scenes: traditional, spectacular, landscaped, mechanical, ancient, modern and also living Nativity scenes with traditional baroque costumes. Then there are some concerts of sacred, classical, baroque and traditional music; finally also consider the themed itineraries, guided tours and visits, Christmas markets and many other initiatives.
The program is sponsored by Genoa's Municipality in collaboration with a lot of public and private entities, and it will be available soon!
