Genoa is a city rich in history and culture, deeply connected to its most ancient traditions.
First of all the nativity scene tradition, which began around the early XVII century and developed in an extraordinary way so that Genoa established itself, alongside Naples, as one of the most active centers in the production of nativity scene figures. Not only this... The Genoese nativity scene, boasting ancient and consolidated traditions, enjoys great prestige, such as to have given life, in the XVIII century, to a real school.
The “Time for Crèche” program, which enhances the rich Genoese nativity scene tradition, offers many suggestive proposals: historical-artistic nativity scenes of national excellence, traditional, scenographic, landscape, mechanical, ancient, modern, living in baroque and traditional costumes; concerts of sacred, classical, baroque and traditional music; thematic itineraries, visits and guided tours, Christmas markets and many other initiatives.
