Home Events Province of Piacenza Piacenza editorial staff LA MAGIA DEL PRESEPE VIVENTE NEL BORGO DI RIVALTA 2019


Borgo di Rivalta

Gazzola (PC)

A twenty-year-long tradition continues with the majestic local recreation of the Nativity Scene with more than 120 characters in the Rivalta borough. On Christmas Eve only, from 10 pm (not in the event of bad weather, of course), the village is transformed into a living Bethlehem village, with representatives of ancient crafts. This tradition recalls Saint Francis's time when religious events were animated with scenographic moments to involve the faithful.
Thanks to the Counts Zanardi Landi, who open the park and the castle for the event, the nativity scene comes alive.

Date: the event will be held on Dec 24, 2019
