A happy return to Orvieto: Donna & Chip

On days 26 , 28, 29 December 2013 and 1, 4 , 5 and January 6, 2014 in Civita di Bagnoregio is renewed the extraordinary event of the Living Nativity .


The organization is managed for the fourth consecutive year by a Non-profit association that organizes over a hundred years the Good Friday procession .
The atmosphere is similar to that which St. Francis, about eight centuries ago , he wanted to play for the first time in Greccio and still represents the tradition of Christian families from all over the world: Christmas with his crib.
A group of traders of spices and fabrics introduces visitors in an environment similar to a Middle Eastern souk,the censor , inside a military settlement of Roman soldiers on foot and horseback records the population at the time, shepherds with flocks of sheep , carpenters, Funari , blacksmiths, bakers , weavers, masons and form the unique decor of a country that carries visitors ideally in that village that over 2000 years ago gave birth to baby Jesus, and that still bears the name of Bethlehem .

   

In the central square of Civita are traditional characters in the Nativity all gathered around the hut where  they found the place Holy Family ox and the donkey , not far away are the Three Kings with their precious cargoes of gold, silver and myrrh from lead to the presence of the Son of God , the alternation of fires and torches makes every scene particularly striking enhancing colors, materials, costumes and objects of a world of light and shadow that we are not used to seeing and that we can find in the beautiful glimpses of the old village of Civita .

     

An amazing outdoor lighting colors the volcanic outcrop of the dying city and the country makes it seem even more alone and suspended in the void of a beautiful landscape and unreal. The sounds and smells that accompany the journey of tourists in the Living Nativity are designed to stimulate the senses of the visitor who suddenly finds herself wandering around in a habitat at a time and still a few centuries ago . The images of the Nativity and the wise scenic reconstruction of that time, fallen into a reality which is unique and incomparable to Civita di Bagnoregio, create an indispensable opportunity to live an extraordinary event and absolutely UNIQUE...
