Imagine a cluster of houses located near an ancient cave, where you can experience the life at the end of the 19th century with all the peculiar crafts in an old village in Sicily as well as the nativity in the hearth of a cave, thanks to the work of an entire community. This the “Presepe”of Custonaci that takes places for a few days from Christmas to the Epiphany in the Mangiapane Caves in western Sicily.
What is unique is not only the location, but expecially the way you experience these scenes of everyday life; just looking from the doors or the windows of this little village. The tools, the clothes, and the products are all real, there is nothing fake. The people of Custonaci, involved in this big set, seem to enjoy what they are doing, and can interact and explain their work. The atmosphere is magical and the reconstruction is absolutely authenthic.
