The Italian Storytelling Center launches the 2017 edition of its great classic, the Storytelling Workshop on Christmas Tales. Together, by the fire of the holy nights, we will track back the inspiring stories of nativities, unlock them and share them with the people of Portico di Romagna, the capital of nativities.

The workshop on Christmas Tales is a tribute to the village of Portico di Romagna. 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 Friday 28th of December to Sunday 30th of December,  when, 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, supported by the members the of the storytellig center.

We are launching this program on a Gift Economy basis. Come along, enjoy the workshop and and, by the end, pay what you can to support the association and fuel stories.

What better than Christmas Eve to make a join our Christmas Tales?
