34TH Nativity in the Well
«The Hero’s Song»

si inaugura in ciclo narrativo degli “ESCLUSI”, con nuove sfide e …nuovi linguaggi!

The subject

Every year the Nativity in the Well proposes a new set-up with an ever-changing leitmotif, mixing sacred texts and traditions, historical truths and timeless myths.
The 34th staging continues the cycle of the “excluded”, in which the Nativity is told by characters who, for various reasons, were unable to see it live. For the 2023-2024 edition, the exceptional narrator will be Herod the Great, who reigned in Judea at the time of Jesus’ birth.

Herod the Great

The name Herod means “the song of the hero” and our hero is precisely that Herod, known as “the Great”, who, according to tradition, was the mandate of the massacre of the innocents.
What do we know about him, his thoughts, his projects, the plots hatched to take away his power? And above all the fears for the rumors that Jesus was his illegitimate nephew?

The Excluded

The cycle of “The Excluded” also represents a turning point in the preparation and conception of the Nativity in the Well: the scenes set up in the basement are in fact enriched by contemporary installations, to underline the topicality of unusual but decidedly engaging stories and themes. After last year’s success, the 2023-’24 edition is yet another bet for an event that has never stopped renewing itself.
