The Exhibition, organised by the Fondazione Verona per l’Arena at the Palazzo della Gran Guardia, consists of a rich display of cribs and works of art inspired by the theme of the Nativity, coming from museums, collections, master crib-makers and enthusiasts from all over the world and, as such, offers a complete artistic picture of the intercontinental crib tradition.
The exhibition continues to gain great acclaim and recognition every year, as if to underline its multi-ethnicity and tolerance between peoples of different cultures.
