Italy's largest nativity scene.

The Nativity of Manarola

The Manarola nativity scene is one of the most awaited events on the Ligurian riviere in December, a striking scenic composition representing the largest nativity scene in Italy.

A luminous display born from the imagination of Mario Andreoli that is renewed each year, enriching itself with new details. The Manarola nativity scene spreads over 4,000 square meters of hillside, spreading out among terraces and vineyards, an evocative open-air religious interpretation.
