The Cribs of the Trentino

The crib has a centuries-long tradition in the Trentino. Every year during the Advent season it is revived thanks to interesting initiatives

The crib tradition in the Trentino goes back to ancient times. It is especially connected with woodcarving, which was and still is practised in parts of the Trentino and especially in the Val di Fiemme valley. Living cribs and crib exhibitions in the villages or woods – a wide range of events is waiting for you.
