Storytelling Workshop on Christmas Tales

A corner of Portico di Romagna, the town of Nativities

Two thousand years ago, in Palestine, a baby born and his story changed the world. This Christmas, our Storytelling Workshop on Christmas Tales will track back this inspiring story, unlock it and share it, by the fire of the holy nights, with the people of Portico di Romagna, the capital of nativities.

At Christmas, indeed, the little hamlet of Portico di Romagna turns into a magic kingdom of nativities. Every person of the community creates his/her own nativity. Bread, salt, wheat, iron, wood, flour. Every material shapes a nativity and all the nativities together create a unique and unrepeatable charm.

The course runs from Wednesday 28th of December at 17.30 to Friday 30th of December at 12.30. On the 30th, in the afternoon, we will share our story in the village. (optional, but great fun!).

The workshop will be held by the storyteller Giovanna Conforto, artistic director of the Italian Storytelling Center.

We are launching this program on a Gift Economy basis. The first edition of Christmas Tales is offered at 190.00 €, but come along and pay what you can.

What better than Christmas Eve to make a join our Christmas Tales? Reservation required by December, the 24th 🙂

Board and lodging excluded.

The course is bilingual Italian/English and no previous experience on storytelling is required.
