Christmas in Bari with St. Nicholas “: Once again this year in conjunction with the Christmas holiday season, the municipal administration aims at promoting and enhancing the historical, cultural, material and non-material heritage of the city. With reference to this, the objective for 2017 is to recover and promote the Nicolaian non-material heritage oriented to the figure of St. Nicholas as a dispenser of gifts. In particular, the intent is to revive the traditions, customs and legends about the life of the saint that lead him back to the figure of Santa Claus, thus further strengthening the bond between the people of Bari and their patron saint.
The public tender to organize the events program during the Christmas holidays, announced by the Municipality of Bari was won by Kiasso Events. The company, chose me to take care of organizing the planned events, as well as setting up the Christmas Markets, the Village and the Santa Claus’ House and the windows from which the musicians play the notes of the Advent Calendar. .
I am very happy to be able to put my imagination and my ideas at the disposal of the citizens of Bari and tourists who choose to spend their holidays or part of them in our city during the Christmas period!
