Bologna's crib has a long and happy tradition. Bologna was in fact a highly qualified centre of crib production. Bologna's crib tradition dates back to the eighteenth century when great artists started creating statuettes, thus signing the beginning of the artistic crib's production season.

The itinerary "Presepi in città" proposes 41 cribs this year. As usual some special tours (in Italian) are offered by Comune di Bologna and guided by the experts of Centro Studi per la Cultura Popolare to make people discover Bologna's cribs and their ancient tradition.
Tours are free and last approx. two hours.
Usually there are two different meeting points for each visit (except for Saturday, January 6) and departure is always at 3.30 pm.
