The traditional Christmas markets of Genoa opened their doors on December 1st, which developed part for via Cadorna develop into viale but which this year have moved to Piazza della Vittoria. To access it is mandatory to have a Green pass and wear a mask, as required by the ordinance signed by the mayor Bucci, which also includes the markets in the places where the new rule must be observed. Which is respected by most citizens.
Among the stalls of street food, gift items and nativity scenes, there are also those who try to differentiate themselves from the others: “We try to sell items that are a little different than usual, so that people are more intrigued to interact with our stand. Having all the same things brings a little be boring, “says Alessio, who runs a stall of Christmas decorations, flowers and pocket Christmas trees.
“The decorations are made by my grandmother, that you wear in the evening after work. Although she is 80 years old she still gives us a hand, all the decorations are handmade by her. Now it takes very little to make one, I can’t keep up with her pace, I definitely have less manual skills than she does. “
