The crib by A di Alessi creates a Christmas atmosphere with a humorous touch. It was designed by the comic drawer and illustrator Massimo Giacon, who was born in Padua in 1961. This wonderfully harmonious Christmas crib group is hand-decorated and brought to life with a great love for details.
With his interpretation of the nativity scene, Massimo Giacon entered the fascinating world of porcelain figurines. In particular, he examined the distinguished tradition of the European porcelain factories that goes back back to the 18th century.
With his porcelain crib Massimo Giacon interprets the well-known Christmas crib in his own new and humorous way. The figures by A di Alessi and Massimo Giacon lend a new direction to the genre of porcelain figures and transform them into contemporary items of furniture.
They are a tender interpretation of the objects that are deeply rooted in tradition and that for a long time have been regarded as functionless and obsolete.
