In Tuscany for the holiday season, history and tradition intersect giving rise to a particular union and suggestive... San Giovanni Valdarno, a city that was the birthplace of Masaccio, will stage an exhibition of nativity "Christmas in the world". The exhibition will be on display until Epiphany. The unique setting of a beautiful terrace at Livorno is one in which you can spend the New Year in the square. The wonderful Terrazza Mascagni this year will host many local artists and bands to greet the New Year with music. Worthy of note are the traditional festivities that take place in Manciano (GR ) on the occasion of the Epiphany. Here the scene is the famous song of the Epiphany, an ancient ceremonial singing of begging which is one of the most important forms of popular Italian theater. Are part of the scene only the witch and the "witch man", with her daughter and the hunchback. Disguises and costumes are inspired by rigorously poor ones of the past, made of patched clothes using hair balls of wool. The rest is improvisation of the actors and the magic atmosphere.
