Genga Living Nativity
CANCELED ALSO IN 2021. The largest Living Nativity in the world.
DECEMBER 17TH, 2021 – THE NEW RULES MAKE IMPOSSIBLE THE EVENT THAT HAS BEEN CANCELED
Genga Living Nativity takes place twice a year, on December 26, 2021, (St. Stephen’s Day/Boxing Day) and Sunday, January 2nd, 2022, from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
The association “Amici del Presepe” creates the living nativity in an impressive 30,000-square-meter area in the Frasassi Gorge since 1981. This means that Genga’s is the largest living nativity in the world: about 300 performers re-enact the nativity scene and local traditions every year.
Along the path that leads to the Cave, visitors can meet shepherds, fishermen, peasants and, in Frasassi Sanctuary, local craftsmen: carpenters, blacksmiths, bakers, cobblers, sculptors, potters, embroiderers and tailors. All of them working with their old professional tools.
In over 30 years, Genga Living Nativity has been visited by 380,000 people.
All proceeds go to charity.
When: December 26th and Sunday January 2nd
