Sculptures of Peace

The theme chosen for the twentieth edition of Jesolo Sand Nativity 2022 is “Sculptures of Peace”.
A journey of ten sculptures was created by 15 international artists who discussed the theme of peace inspired by evangelical episodes and historical facts. Against the backdrop of the tragic conflict in Ukraine, which upsets the heart and conscience of Europe and which, as Pope Francis recalled, requires a strong collective will in favour of peace.

The sculptors created the worked within about 750 square meters, from 1,500 tons of sand. The exhibition will be free for visitors and will take place from 9 December to 5 February 2023 according to the following timetable: from Monday to Friday from 9.30 to 12.30 and from 14.30 to 19.30; Saturday, Sunday and holidays with continuous opening hours from 9.30 to 19.30.
