From humble beginnings in Bagni di Lucca, Italy, the Fontanini Heirloom Nativities have risen to worldwide acclaim. Nearly a century after Emanuele Fontanini founded the House of Fontanini, its hand-painted Nativities grace the Vatican, international cathedrals and appear in Hollywood films. Fontanini’s unique blend of Old World craftsmanship with modern innovation has made classic Italian sculpture accessible to families everywhere, even the youngest child! Thanks to the remarkable medium of polymer, each figure resists breakage yet faithfully reproduces the exquisite detail of the original clay sculpture. Start your own family tradition with an Heirloom Nativity, the heart of Christmas celebrations and cherished memories for generations.
