The City of Jesolo celebrates the magic of Christmas with Jesolo Sand Nativity, a very charming and suggestive sand nativity scene that enchants thousands of visitors from all over the world.
Since 2002, the best international sand sculptors have gathered in the seaside town to create a monumental sand nativity scene. Since then, edition after edition, Sand Nativity has grown in number of visitors establishing itself as one of the best known nativity scenes in all of Italy. To date, over 1 million visitors have visited Sand Nativity.
This year the theme that accompanies the nativity of sand will be the miracles of Jesus, an invitation to reflect on the profound link between faith and the hope of salvation and healing.
Jesolo Sand Nativity changes location! A few steps from the traditional location in Piazza Marconi, the sand nativity scene of Jesolo moves to Piazza Trieste, with a grandiose setting and a rich exhibition, monumental sculptures and perspective views with painted scenographies and olive trees, will accompany visitors in a fascinating emotional and spiritual journey.
