For the Trapani area is already time to cribs, which for a while ītime are set up and are waiting for the finishing touches.

As is known to all, in fact, in our part of Christmas is one of the most felt festivities, whose values and religious meanings traditionally are fully embodied by the crib. Of these, at the time of writing, it is not known yet no firm date for opening to the public, but we burn the stages recalling the main events that characterize the Christmas period hinterland Trapani, waiting for clarification which we will give in the next few days .

First, we should mention the charming and picturesque nativity scene of Custonaci, which will come this year to the 32 th edition. A real show evocative, which is no coincidence since 2006 is entered in the Register of Intangible Heritage, between 100 intangibles of the Sicilian Region. An event known throughout Italy and beyond, which activates every year hundreds of thousands of visitors, as well as television and newspapers, all fascinated by the extraordinary setting and the historical and cultural context that is lived in the Cave Mangiapane. In addition to the nativity, is an opportunity to see revived the ancient crafts and scenes of daily life that have disappeared.

It does not end here, cribs something for every taste, from traditional to what we might call "last generation". In this regard deserves without any doubt to be seen also that of Giuseppe Borghi, a mechanical crib craft characterized by appreciable stage effects, thanks to which switches between the four stages of the day. The work is made entirely of clay, ceramic, stone, cork, moss and other plants.





Size usually smaller, but no less valuable, appears to be the crib of Via Corallai. An appointment as tradition is renewed every Christmas, and that in the past has earned its author - Leonardo Galuppo, a retired sea - various awards.



A Valderice, to be precise at Mercy, will be staged again this year, "The Bible in the Park" event now in its 18th edition and organized by the Socio-Cultural Pro Mercy. Transposition theme of biblical passages, through the creation of paintings static living, which is divided along a guided path consists of scenes from the Old and New Testament. An appointment that is renewed, it must be said, thanks to the dedication and sacrifice of about two hundred volunteers.

But we have a date certain, and it is that of the Christmas events organized in Erice. From December 6 to January 6, in fact, you can breathe the ancient and timeless Christmas air, thanks to the crib century museum A. Cordici, made with materials and alabaster. Not only for a whole month, also in one of the most beautiful villages of our country will be able to admire the Christmas markets, exhibitions, concerts, nativity scenes in churches and courtyards, the compositions of wax kept at the church of St. Giuliano.
