Nativity
This event is produced as ever, by the City of Jesolo, in Venice, Italy.

      The Sultans Of Sand Worldwide welcome you to the eighth edition of "Presepi Di Sabbia" (the Sand Nativity).  As presented by the City of Jesolo.
     Always the biggest and the best event of its kind in all of Europe, it is Italy's premier sand sculpture display. The city is proud to have been the first in the country to bring modern commercial sand sculpture operations to Italy. Jesolo is now universally regarded as a true 'jewel in the crown' of the world sand sculpture tour.
     Combined with its sister project each summer; the Jesolo International Sand Sculpture Exhibition, these two annual sand events are widely recognized as being of the very finest quality shows currently being done in sand, anywhere in the entire world.
    This year the Nativity sculptures are being presented in a unique way. For the first time, each sculpture is 'inspired' by a specific extant painting from art history.
These particular paintings are reproduced in a large scale format and on display in the show tent alongside the sculptures. Likewise, they are featured together with the photos of the completed sand sculptures, on this event web site.  See both the paintings and the completed sculptures on the Finished Sculptures photo page.
  
Additionally, a famous Italian professor of art, did a live television presentation of the show on location, immediately before the grand opening of the show on 06 December, 2009.
   See the progress of the sculptures as they were being made, as well as other interesting things including archived images of both the winter and summers shows we have done here in Jesolo, by selecting from the menu tabs at the top of all these event pages for this, the Sand Nativity 2009. 
We hope you will enjoy the show, as much as we enjoy presenting it to you!
   Photos are nice, and we are glad to be able to present this show to the world in a digital format that you can see here online. But photos simply do not do justice to the captivating and awe inspiring impact of seeing the magnificent sand sculptures up close and in person. Especially as rendered by some of the greatest talents currently working in the world of modern pro sand sculpting. So if you can, we proudly invite you to come and see the Jesolo Nativity this year in person, along with all your family and friends!

Ciao!
