5" Nativity Sets

A Timeless tradition...from Tuscany to Your HomeA Timeless tradition...from Tuscany to Your Home
According to tradition, Italy was the birthplace of the nativity scene. In 1223, St. Francis of Assisi first created a living nativity scene using local farmers and animals in a stable setting. St. Francis wanted to show ordinary people that Jesus was just like them. The entire village was involved in this celebration, which was repeated year after year. Soon this celebration spread throughout Italy, and inspired the custom of keeping miniature carved nativity figures in family homes. This custom has grown to be the centre of the Italian Christmas celebration. Traditionally, scenes include characters beyond the core Nativity scene, to represent the people of the village. They are adorned in accessories and clothing to illustrate their role in village life. Today, the fourth generation of the Fontanini family brings you the time-honoured Italian Nativity

Tradition direct from the hills of Tuscany.
