Created in virtually unbreakable, child-friendly polymer, the figures are hand painted and given a rich patina finish by skilled artisans. Each 5" figure comes with a Fontanini Story Card. These stories are based on historical facts, helping you to understand the joys and challenges of everyday life in Jesus' time.
The Italian tradition of recreating the Nativity scene began centuries ago. Four generations of the Fontanini Family, for over 100 years, have brought this time-honored tradition into homes all over the world. These marvelous Nativity figures are still crafted in Bagni di Lucca, a charming Italian village nestled in the hills of Tuscany.
Holly Wreath is proud to have the largest display of Fontanini in SE Connecticut. When in the Mystic area, please stop by and visit our replica of Bethlehem.
