Since 2002 Jesolo has hosted an exhibition-event able to attract thousands of visitors every year, whose fame has grown so much that it has been also imitated by other important Italian cities: it is the Sand Nativity Scene.

The charm and suggestion of this event depend of creative and manual capability of sand-sculptors coming from all over the world and able to revive the real spirit of Christmas by an art form that evokes childhood memories.

The success of Sand Nativity event was such that it was replicated also in Rome in 2018 on the wonderful Piazza San Pietro, where the refinement of details and the originality of sand compositions enchanted millions of people. The Nativity sculptures were also staged in Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019.

Jesolo has been able to combine the renowned reputation of a city of great events with the sand, its own raw material, creating an exhibition appreciated for its beauty for almost twenty years.

The aim of solidarity, the true constitutive element of Christmas, is also fundamental: to date, already 24 locations in 4 continents have benefited by the projects carried out thanks to the contribution of sand nativity visitors.
