Presepi sull’acqua, literally meaning nativity scenes on water, will be held in Crodo and the surrounding mountain hamlets from 7th December 2017 to 7th January 2018 and will take visitors on a magical and emotional journey through fifty-five nativity scenes. The last edition of this event attracted 20,000 visitors from all over Italy, partly thanks to the beauty of the mountain setting.

This event also presents the perfect opportunity to experience some gastronomic delights; a visit to some of the local restaurants to enjoy some of the delicious zero-mile food on offer is an absolute must
