Christmas is about to start with its magical atmospheres made of sparkling lights, decorations and spicy notes of cinnamon and sugar. Those who wish to get ready for the festive season with a little shopping can find a selection of decorations and Christmas gifts at Rinascente. Since October until January, the large department store located in the beating heart of the city features a rich selection of offers to decorate the house including lights, Christmas trees all sizes, music boxes and small themed objects. Moreover, for the first time ever, the flagship store has been enriched by the precious nativity scenes by artisans from the city of San Giorgio Armeno. Particular noteworthy are the small terracotta statues by Ferrigno, one of the masters of the Neapolitan art of creche-making. Shopping lovers looking for a unique element to complete their crib can be sure that each of the San Giorgio Armeno-made statues is the result of a long artisanal tradition passed down from one generation to another and of a painstaking attention to detail.
