In front of the Beach Office n. 6 (Pinguino) in via Lungomare Trieste 7

On Friday, the 8th December the traditional Sand Nativity in Lignano Sabbiadoro comes back: exhibition of sand sculptures just a few minutes from Bibione, which in 2023 reaches its 20th edition.

Last year’s location is reconfirmed: in front of the Beach Office n. 6 (Pinguino) in via Lungomare Trieste 7 – in front of the San Giovanni Bosco Park – it will in fact be possible, from 8th December 2023 to 4th February 2024, to see the works of various professionals in sand processing in an exhibition that every year welcomes thousands and thousands of visitors from all over Europe.

Days and opening hours are as follows:

  • Full time from 10 am to 6 pm:
    • December: from 8 to 10, 16 and 17, 23 and 24, from 26 to 31
    • January: from 1 to 7, on 14, 21 and 28
    • February: on 4.
  • Only afternoon from 2 to 6 pm:
    • December: from 11 to 15, from 18 to 22, on 25
    • January: on 13, 20 and 27
    • February: on 3.

The event, which entrance is with free donation, is organized by the Association Dome Aghe e Savalon d’Aur, in collaboration with Pro Loco LignanoLignano in Fiore Onlus, Lignano Sabbiadoro Gestioni, with the support of the City of Lignano Sabbiadoro and the contribution – fundamental – of the local associations. It is inserted in the frame of the celebrations of “Natale d’A…Mare” of the Friulian seaside resort.

There is no reservation needed.

The 2023 edition bears the title “Following the rivers, towards the sea and the lagoon”: a tribute to the territory between the Stella and the Tagliamento and between the lagoon and the sea. The internal layout, renewed in its technological components, has been developed to enhance the plasticity of the sculptural works, which are the result, this year, of a long project work curated by Lara Gonzo and Maestro Mario Vittadello.

The audio guide for the 2023 edition will also be available on the website.

​The valiant artists and professionals of the sand very year work for months to realize real sculptures without the use of glues or other similar materials for the maintenance using only sandwater and their great mastery. Work begins as early as October!

Appointment then in Lignano to admire a valuable work, which will leave you with an open mouth!
