The House of Fontanini was founded in 1908 by Emanuele Fontanini in Bagni di Lucca, Italy and has established itself as the premier maker of heirloom quality Nativities and Christian figures. Emanuele's great grandsons, Emanuele and Stefano, have assumed the leadership roles and are taking the House of Fontanini into the 21st century with their awe inspiring Fontanini© Heirloom Nativities©.
It is a custom in Italy to sculpt figures of people from all walks of life as they pay homage to the newborn King. Fontanini creates new nativity sets, village pieces and villagers each year allowing you to start your Christmas nativity scene and add to your Nativity village each year. We have a nice selection of Nativity starter and complete sets, Village structures, landscapes and villager figurines that allow you to build a complete Nativity village scene.
