Italian cribs
Italian cribs

It's one of the Umbrian traditional appointments during holidays: we are talking about "Italian cribs", the National Exhibition of the Artistic Crib on calendar from the 24th December to the 7th January in Massa Martana.


In one of the most beautiful Italian villages, it will be possible to admire the artworks of many important sculptors who, in the city center, will exhibit their artworks about Nativity. Inside the historical walls, it will be possible to find Neapolitans' and Palestinian cribs, dioramas and the masterpieces of ceramic masters of the 14 ceramics cities that are guests of the event.

The Ice Crib won't be naturally missing and in the 2017 edition it promises to amaze the public thanks to the inspiring scenery and the enchanting spectacle of lights. 

The Crib is composed by life-size statues sculpted on big ice blocks and is kept at a temperature of 18 degrees all over the Exhibition.

You will discover again all the magic and atmosphere of holidays among mulled wine, roast chestnuts and Christmas lights.
