In the heart of Taormina, inside the noble residence of Palazzo Ciampoli, the magic of Christmas is renewed with the exhibition of Natum Videte – an animated monumental nativity scene, belonging to the ancient Caltagirone ceramics tradition.
This work of art boasts exhibitions in various European capitals.
The master sculptors from Caltagirone, after a careful research, have given life to this impressive masterpiece, shaping the characters from the clay and reproducing the eighteenth-century Sicilian countryside, with its typical villages.
The nativity scene, entirely handmade, represents the archetypal Sicilian landscape with its rural houses, and is adorned with natural plants, suggestive lights and moving figures.
