Christmas Trees Light Italian Piazzas

Last week we brought you Christmas markets from each of the twenty regions of Italy. This week we have selected some of our favorite Italian Christmas trees from various regions. Although many of the well-known (and not so known) piazzas use traditional spruce, fir and pine trees on which to hang lights and ornaments, there are also some very creative ways of displaying Christmas spirit, as you will see within these pages. Many of the displays are breathtaking, while some show a humorous side to holiday cheer!
