Cribs of Europe - Canha da Silva Collection


472 cribs from all over Europe arrive at the Church of San Francisco in Evora for an exhibition that can be visited between December 7, 2018 and October 31, 2019.

The works of this exhibition show us how various countries in Europe represent the Nativity, mirroring their regional identities, cultural and affective experiences, where spirituality mingles with fantasy and religious scenes with the profane ones.

To the peculiarities of the French Provencal crib, to the Italian one , to the famous Neapolitan crib or German helix cribs, are associated others that take advantage of more contemporary sensibilities, explored in the most diverse materials, from silver to the marzipan.
