I Presepi di Ravenna
Ravenna e dintorni
Date: Saturday, 7th December 2013 - Tuesday, 4th March 2014

The age-old Italian tradition of cribs displayed in the churches – the artistic symbols of the popular culture which urge us to reflect on the mystery of the Nativity – is very strong in Ravenna. You can admire them both inside the churches and in the shop windows of the city centre, as well as in some seaside resorts on the coast of Ravenna.

Not to be missed: the Sand Nativity in Marina di Ravenna (from 7 December to 19 January 2014), realized by international artists.
