Presepe di ghiaccio
Let yourself be enchanted by new forms of ice.
Dal 04/12/21 al 09/01/22
Location: Piazza I Maggio Jesolo Paese
Jesolo is magical in every season, and during the Christmas period it will turn into an enchanted city of ice, ready to amaze you with a thousand wonders. From Saturday, December 4, 2021 to Sunday, January 9, 2022, the historic centre of Jesolo will host the largest ice Nativity scene in Italy. The depiction of the nativity is made spectacular by the use of ice. Known as an ephemeral material, it is transformed by artists into a fascinating material, imprinted with the work of sculptors and embracing their idea, capturing the light and reflecting it in a thousand colours.
The team of sculptors from the Italian Academy of Artistic Ice is led by Francesco Falasconi, a master carver who has many awards. The artists include Francesco Carrer and Matteo Renato. For Jesolo, the team has created a unique exhibition, a nativity scene with life-size statues. The Nativity, the three wise men, the shepherds and all the other characters will be set in a refrigerated display case of 65 square meters with a linear front of 14m, which is maintained at an internal temperature of 12 degrees.
On certain days it will be possible to see the craftsmen at work while they make a figure before our very eyes! This enchanting world will be inaugurated on Saturday, December 4 at 4pm in Piazza I Maggio. There is a free shuttle service that connects the major Christmas attractions in Jesolo throughout the festive season.
