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

The valiant artists and professionals of the Academy (which boasts 30 years of experience in this work) are already working since October to realize real sculptures without the use of glues or other similar materials for the maintenance: they use only sand, water and their great skill.

The previous edition 2017 was focused on the war and human events that involved the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia 100 years earlier, with a Nativity contextualized in a scenography of that time. In addition, the Yule tree was once again realized, dedicated to the winter solstice celebrations: a sort of ancestor of the Christmas tree revisited in a modern key, with the insertion of interactive scenographies. Moreover, the Beach Trek: an external area with interactive fittings and elements especially for children. Some statistics: 5000 used quintals of sand, 400 sqm the size of the marquee, 150 meters the length of the route to see all the sculptural groups.

Appointment then on the “Piazza Natale” (Christmas Square) in Lignano to admire a valuable work, which will leave you with an open mouth!
