Nativity Scenes at the Historic Port of CivitavecchiaOpening times, contact details and useful information to visit the Nativity Scenes at the Old Rock in the Historic Port of Civitavecchia
Also this year, the Exhibition of Nativity Scenes at the Old Rock placed in the Historic Port of Civitavecchia opens again, being an important Christmas tradition in Civitavecchia, with an increasing success.
The event, organized by Associazione "Il Presepio" with the contribution of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Civitavecchia and the sponsorship of Ports of Rome and the City Council of Civitavecchia, will be held in the Old Rock of Civitavecchia, prestigious location of Medieval origin, that will make the visit to the exhibition even more suggestive and thrilling.
This year the event is dedicated to Professor Statilio Gargiulli, Vice President of the Exhibition, who recently passed away. In his honor, various works by the artist will be exhibited.
There really are options for all tastes! From pretty big nativity scenes to miniature works of art, from more classical settins to original scenes inspired in Asian, modern or pure fantasy designs. Everything spiced with a play of light and perspective that give value to the event of the nativity in its historical, artistic and religious meaning.
Enlarged year after year in quality and number of pieces, the event is as good as other exhibitions famous at the national level.
An event for the whole family that you can just not miss!
