From January 4 to 7, "Spello Splendens", now in its 7th edition, will promote once again the knowledge of ancient melodies inspired to Christmas: it's a unique occasion in the international scene to listen to sounds of instruments of other times such as bagpipes and pipes.
Beyond a month of events among markets, market exhibitions, cribs and concerts will invade Spoleto for Christmas: from 8th December 2016 to 14th January 2017 the holidays' magic will envelope the historical center with "Spoleto, the town in a crib".
Since 1981 the biggest Christmas tree in the world has been on the slopes of Monte Ingino, overlooking Gubbio and illuminating the town with its splendid colour effects.
Celebrations of the birth centenary of the famous artist from Città di Castello will end with "Alberto Burri: the Substance's Space – between Europe and Asia".
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.
