An impressive piece of art, the Natività by Francesco Artese, is to be seen for free in the Turku main church 9am-6pm until the 6th of Jan 2014.
It is a big (houses almost as high as I am) miniature replication of the Italian village Basilicata. The village is said to be timeless, a mixture of modern and ancient, and it is one of UNESCO world heritage sites. The replication is also housing the Christmas crib in a stable as the display is a part of the Italian Christmas crib building tradition.
My toddlers especially liked to follow the moon; the night and day is changing in the display. I quite liked how the light and the colours changed depending on the time of the day.
There is currently an other example of the Italian Christmas crib building tradition on display in Helsinki.
