Among the events in conjunction with Christmas at Gabicce Mare could not miss the usual appointment of the cultural association Il Fortino di Gabicce Mare dedicated, this year, to the iconography of the image of Christmas.

The Pro Loco Castrum Ligabitii this year has placed an emphasis on traditions related to popular culture and rituals of the Winter Solstice. On the occasion of the prestigious event organized by the Cultural Association Il Fortino of Gabicce Mare, we wonder if the best match of the image of the King Oak (Old Sun) and of the Holly King (New Sun) as in the picture here next, can be considered the forerunner of today’s Santa Claus. It will be a question to ask to Doc. Luca Baroni, PhD student in the history of art at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, who SUNDAY DECEMBER 15 at 4.00 pm will be in the SQUARE OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF GABICCE MARE.
