Among the initiatives planned as part of the "Mediterranean Christmas" review, which until 8 January will enliven the Christmas festivities in the Trapani area, is that of the Medieval Living Nativity set up by the Tramari&eventi association chaired by M° Natale Maltese.

In the past years the representation of the nativity of Jesus Christ was organized in the ancient church of S. Lorenzo Levita in Xitta with its various art objects and antique furnishings, while this year visitors will find the typical merchants, artisans and all the characters in perfect medieval style in the Pepoli municipal park in Trapani, where they will be involved in dances and various tastings.

It is a somewhat atypical nativity scene, but equally fascinating because it passes from the typical figures of the traditional nativity scene to jugglers and stokers and then again guards and knights, commoners and small children with their games even if the heart of the representation is and remains the Holy Family, as it was conceived in the first crib in history, which was made in 1223 by St. Francis of Assisi in Greccio.

The Crib will start to come alive on Wednesday 4 January at 5.30pm with the “Trinacria” drummer parade, while at 6.30pm there will be an inaugural procession which will make a short journey to reach the crib village set up inside Villa Pepoli, where it will be the delivery of the gifts of the three royal knights, then the tributes of the commoners and nobles will follow.

At 19.30 a suggestive fire show "Shadow and Light" with various choreographic moments will entertain visitors. The nativity scene can be visited until 21.30 when it will close its doors to reopen on Thursday afternoon with the arrival of the piper.

On Friday 6 January, the feast of the Epiphany, the crib village can also be visited in the morning at 10.30 with the show of the stilt walker, the musicians and the triumph of light.
