Jeshua & Adin by Fontanini
If you grew up with a nativity set in your home that was a family heirloom, chances are pretty good that is was a Fontanini Nativity set.
The Fontanini tradition dates back to the late 1800s when company founder Emanuele Fontanini began creating crèche figures in the little town of Bagni di Lucca located in Tuscany, Italy. He opened his first shop in 1908, and the company has remained a family business ever since. Today, it is run by Emanuele’s great-grandchildren.
What makes Fontanini nativity sets so enduringly popular? The answer lies in their beauty, their details, and their durability.
