SAND NATIVITY 2017

Sand Nativity , the sand manger scene of Jesolo, will be inaugurated on Friday 8 December 2017 in piazza Marconi and can be visited until Sunday 11 February 2018. The theme of the 16th edition,Va’ e anche tu fa’ lo stesso, recalls the parables and other episodes of the Gospel centred on love for others. In an imaginary path towards the real Manger scene with the Holy Family and Baby Jesus, we can see depicted "the good Samaritan", "the prodigal son", "the Good Shepherd", and "the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fish" inserted in a context of everyday life in the city of Nazareth. The sand sculptures have as background some perspective views painted by the American artist Damon Farmer, which help the visitors experience the atmosphere of the period.
