Winter magic in the village of Santa Massenza
A Christmas that gleams with light and emotions
Light takes centre stage at Christmas. Colourful – like the illuminations that brighten up the streets. Vivid – like the crackling fire in the fireplace. Radiant – like the smiling faces that you encounter at this time in the village of Santa Massenza. Because magic happens right here, amid the glittering stalls and moonlight shows – we call it happiness!
December comes alive with its lively hubbub, the scents of cinnamon and biscuits in the air and music floating through the alleyways: a joyful atmosphere, just like the spirit of those who look forward all year to this festival! The intimate atmosphere of the Vite di Luce Christmas market brings Santa Massenza to sparkling life, with handicrafts and food and wine products – all ready to be wrapped and put under the Christmas tree.
And, once the muffled buzz of the daytime gives way to the mystical silence of the evening, put on your headphones and let a guide help you discover this little town, one that is home to a grand tradition: the festivities see five distilleries illuminated – places where prized Trentino grappas and liqueurs are produced. Take a journey through this historic art for a spectacle that ends in the central square: the “Night of the Stills” is a Christmas event to brighten the hearts of visitors – and warm them too, as the glasses clink for a final toast under the stars.
