The Magic of Christmas in Lazio
The atmosphere of Christmas enchants both young and old people, including sparkling lights, decorated trees and traditional perfumes. In Lazio this magic joins spirituality, thanks to the many suggestive interpretations of the Nativity that animate the many villages in the region.
As Sutri, immersed in the Archaeological Park of the Etruscan-Roman necropolis, where every year there is the magic of the Nativity and for the occasion the Etruscan tombs, expertly lit with Roman torches, are the background to the paintings staged depicting daily life in Palestine from 2000 years ago.
Here you can see people in period costume, women, men and children intent on carrying out the work and the daily games, Roman guards with their camp, to strike while the iron smiths and bakers bake bread. You can attend to the Living Nativity on 1, 6, 7 and 8 January. January 6, you will see the Three Kings reach, starting from the Cathedral of Sutri, the hut of the Nativity.
Another event not to be missed is the Living Nativity of Corchiano, where the soundtrack by Nicola Piovani and the narrative voice of Gigi Proietti will accompany you in a charming atmosphere, making you immerse in a real theater outdoors, enhanced by notes of great composer and voice actor's skill Roman.
The appointment with the 47th edition of the event is for the 1, 5 and 6 January: from the stands set up for the occasion, you can enjoy a breathtaking view and appreciate the scenery which in this edition will be enriched with new and surprising views, crafts and special effects.
To make the rest will be the costumes that reflect faithfully the clothes of the time, stage effects and a unique location, the "Natural Monument of the Gorges", which is accessed through an imposing road cut Etruscan dug out of tufa. A place of historical memory steeped in ancient tales, a nerve center of the country's peasant life time and now a protected natural area.
