Nativity in the Well

32nd NATIVITY IN THE WELL

After the 2020 break for Covid-19, the Nativity in the Well returns, with a setting that will not fail to cause discussion.

The 32nd edition is entitled «THE SON OF THE FATHER», which in Aramaic is called "Bar-abbâ". It is Barabbas, the "rival" of Jesus in the cruel runoff proposed by Pilate, who accompanies us along the caves

From 23 December 2021 to 9 January 2022

THE EVENT TAKES PLACE IN FULL COMPLIANCE WITH THE CURRENT ANTI-COVID REGULATION
The Nativity scene is set up within the "Museums Net for our Territory" project, created with the contribution of the Umbria Region
Our event received the patronage of the Umbria Region and the Municipality of Orvieto
