Corciano

  • Corciano's crib:  The inspiring monumental crib has taken place for 33 years along the historical center's alleys, small squares and corners. The scenes of the many characters on a man scale, with hands and heads of earthenware and medieval clothes, give to the village such an enchanting atmosphere that the visitor almost seems to perceive voices and noises of the market, as well as of artisans and animals. Each year the crib, renewed by the groups of volunteers of the Saint Maria Assunta's Parish who take care of its design, scenic system and setting, concerns a different current theme, useful to admire and to reflect: the 2016 will be devoted to "Mercy's Works".
