The Enchanted Loggia in Treviso
And the garden of the House of Santa Claus
The Loggia Incantata has arrived in Treviso, a fairy-tale art installation that, among reindeer, fir trees and a thousand lights, brings us back to the most authentic atmosphere of Christmas.
In Treviso the lights went on on the “Loggia Incantata”, one of the most anticipated attractions of Christmas 2021.
Housed in the Loggia dei Cavalieri, a symbolic monument of the city, this year it hosts the garden of Santa’s house complete with reindeer, elves and furry bears.
The installation was created by Michele Crema for the MC3 Design studio with the artist Diego Sacilotto, who reproduced a mural of the Northern Lights, the background of the scenario. An installation of more than 50 thousand lights, with seven pines (seven meters each, all with their own roots to allow for re-planting), 68 fir trees and 250 azaleas.
The protagonist of the Loggia is Santa’s wooden house, fully furnished with a bed, fireplace and, of course, the inevitable armchair where he rests on his return to his daily missions to deliver gifts to children from all over the world.
Until 6 January, on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, from 10 to 13 and from 15 to 20, you can also visit the inside of the house and have a souvenir photo taken by the photographer Alvise Bortolanza and his staff in the company of Santa Claus and his reindeers.
And if you don’t find Santa Claus, you can still send him a letter by posting it in one of the two red boxes you find at the entrance to the Lodge. In January, the 10 most beautiful missives will be chosen: just enter your phone number to receive, in case of victory, a special gift.
La Loggia Incantata is an initiative part of the Enchanted Christmas promoted by the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Treviso with the support of the Treviso-Belluno Dolomiti Chamber of Commerce, the main trade associations, CentroMarca Banca and numerous private partners.
