XIV EXHIBITION OF NATIVITY SCENES: "THE NATIVITY SCENE: JOSEPH IN THE LIFE OF JESUS".
On Wednesday 8 December, at 3 p.m., at the Sala della Musica, the opening of the fourteenth edition of the crib exhibition will be held.
The Crib Exhibition at Villa Litta is one of the most eagerly awaited traditional events in Lainate, organised by the municipal administration and the Italian Association of Friends of the Crib - Milan-Lainate branch.
After the year of pandemic, the opportunity to walk among the dioramas and cribs finally returns.
The exhibition, entitled "Joseph in the life of Jesus", was inspired by the year dedicated by Pope Francis to the figure of St Joseph, declared patron saint of the universal Church.
Some members of the Italian Association of Friends of the Crib have built two dioramas representing two episodes from Joseph's life: the presentation in the Temple and the rest during the flight to Egypt, as well as very special cribs, which originate from European traditions of great scenic impact.
The exhibition will be open until 9 January at the following times:
public holidays and pre-holidays: from 10:00 to 12:30 and from 15:30 to 18:30
25 December: closed
from 26 December also on weekdays, but only in the afternoon: from 15:30 to 18:30
1 January: only open in the afternoon from 15:30 to 18:30.
Every Sunday afternoon (16:00 - 18:00) there will be a nativity workshop for children in the rooms of Villa Litta adjacent to the exhibition.
