XVIII EDITION – “…Come l’uom s’etterna” – Hommage to Dante’s Divina Commedia
Also in 2021 the long-awaited Sand Nativity of Lignano Sabbiadoro returns, now in its 18th edition, a central attraction in the calendar of Christmas events in the Friulian seaside resort.
This year the Sand Nativity took the opportunity of the seven hundredth anniversary of Dante’s death to pay a humble and respectful homage to the Divine Comedy with the intention of offering its many visitors, together with the usual moments of beauty and serenity, a completely new experience. The challenge is to ideally make Dante’s path in the Divine Comedy coexist with that of the crib. Some of the most significant and emblematic episodes and characters of Hell and Purgatory take the place of the traditional characters of the Nativity scene and are reinterpreted in a contemporary key both with the aim of suggesting possible reflections on our life and our time, and with the intent to act as a trigger for a visual, emotional and suggestive journey into the memory that each of us has of Dante’s masterpiece. At the end of the itinerary, the two paths will merge, culminating in a grandiose final scene.
The Sand Nativity in Lignano is organized by the Dome Aghe and Savalon d’Aur Association, with the support of the City of Lignano, in collaboration with Pro Loco Lignano, Lignano in Fiore Onlus, Lignano Sabbiadoro Gestioni and with the fundamental contribution of the Lignano associations.
