The Nativity in the Well
the original underground crib of the Pozzo della Cava with life-size animated characters
The fascinating setting
And we do this in the big Etruscan cave at the end of the underground archaeological itinerary of Pozzo della Cava, in the Medieval Quarter of Orvieto.
From the 2013-2014 edition, in addition to the mechanical characters, some animatroni have been inserted on the scene, whose motors are driven by special integrated microprocessors, to increase the naturalness of the movements.
Furthermore, the lights and other “special effects” such as fires, burning embers, smoke or boiling milk contribute to increasing the realism of the nativity scene, alternating and renewing in every setting.
31st NATIVITY IN THE WELL

The event will also be enriched by an original exhibition on the on the coins of the time of Jesus.
