Greccio & the Live Nativity

A great event during Christmas time to celebrate St Francis and his live nativity, the first ever made

Leave a Comment

Greccio is a small town near Rieti, where St Francis conceived the first living nativity scene ever made in history, in 1223.

To keep this tradition alive, the inhabitants of Greccio recreate this live nativity scene every year since 1973, a great event one might participate during Christmas time.
