New Year’s Eve in Assisi31 December 2019
A journey between spirituality and tradition
Christmas has finally arrived and in Umbria we are ready to live it with joy and spirituality. According to tradition the most characteristic towns and villages of Umbria are preparing to set up cribs of all kinds. Assisi, a city known throughout the world as the "city of the crib", pays homage to the art of nativity scenes with numerous initiatives. Every corner and street of the historic centre will be embellished with small and large cribs.
Among the living nativity scenes we point out that of Armenzano (26 and 30 December, 1 January), that of San Gregorio (26 and 30 December, 1 and 6 January) and that of Petrignano (25, 26 and 30 December, 1 January).
Another suggestive crib is the crib of San Martino di Gubbio, which can be visited from December 8th to January 6th.
