Presepe: 100 years of Gatteo Mare

The artistic nativity scene of Gatteo Mare

Gatteo Mare did not want to give up the traditional appointment with the nativity scene that adorns the central square of the town and will do so with a mechanically animated nativity scene, the fruit of the artist Marco Fantini and his family.

The inspiration comes from the celebration of the anniversary of the birth of Gatteo Mare.
In fact, on September 28, 1921, the municipality 'Due Bocche' was born, so called because of its geographical position, located precisely between the mouths of two rivers. Therefore, the theme designed for this year's nativity scene is connected to the marine context and everything that characterizes it.

The crèche, 25 square meters and covered by a canopy to protect it from the elements, will be placed on a real stage that will open in Piazza della Libertà and will leave all visitors speechless.

Two years ago the artist had already exhibited a mechanically animated artistic nativity scene in the square of Gatteo Mare, but this year he decided to renew it, making the vision unique and a new experience for everyone.
