About Fontanini

These handmade decorative pieces are truly a work of art. Shop around, and you will quickly agree that you have found a special bit of decorative work that not only will you want to display year after year, but also you know that you will pass down from generation to generation. The Fontanini Nativity collection is a beloved tradition of Christmas and religious decorations going back over one hundred years, all stemming from a single family's work in a small town in Italy.

Since 1908, the House of Fontanini has created magnificent old-world sculptures treasured by collectors and revered by worshipers all over the world. Today, Emanuele, Alessandro, Luca, Marco, and Stefano Fontanini are the fourth generation to lead the celebrated House of Fontanini in the village of Bagni di Lucca, Italy, where it was founded nearly a century ago.

Priding themselves on "Building Family Traditions", these young men are honored to follow in the footsteps of their fathers, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Breathtaking in detail and workmanship, Fontanini Nativities are comprised of lifelike figures and historically researched structures in eight different sizes that together present an extraordinary step back in time to Biblical Bethlehem.

Products by Fontanini

As a top of the line producer of Nativity figurines, the Fontanini style is not one to overlook. From the smallest table top figurines to life sized statues, they come in any needed style. Their care in the creation of each piece is also unparalleled. The meticulous nine-step process in creating each figure can take up to two years, and each piece is carefully painted by hand to capture every tiny detail. Crated out of a high quality polymer resin, the figures have a resilience that belies their delicate and detailed appearance. The Holy Family, shepherds and their flocks, the Wise Men, angels, and literally villages filled with other figures are all available, all containing the same level of care, craftsmanship, and intricate beauty.

First brought to the West by Roman Inc. in 1973, through them we are proud to offer these exquisite items. In the Fontanini tradition, new items are being created each year, so there is always something new to discover from this enduring and endearing tradition. Their wide variations in size and scale also guarantees plenty of options for a customer to find the exact item, both in terms of space and price, that they need.
