These collectibles are created in a small village in Tuscany, Italy.  The creators have been working on these intricate figurines for more than four generations, with the help of family members and others who live in the village.  Today, Emanuele, Allesandro, Luca, Marco and Stefano Fontanini follow in the footsteps of their fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfather in detail and workmanship.

MOSACK'S Christian Gifts & Books is blessed with a visit from one of the Fontanini cousins every four years.  Marco Fontanini (pictured on top left of color picture) has visited our store twice, Stefano has toured at our store once and Emanuele visited us the third time on December 4, 2019.   When they visit us they introduce a new collectible exclusive to their visit and they autograph collectibles from customers who come from all over Northeast Ohio.   Please join our mailing list and we will remind you when another Fontanini cousin schedules a special appearance to MOSACK'S. 

A tradition like no other

The process for making Fontanini collectibles is detailed and intricate, with very strict attention to detail.  Before any piece is introduced into the collection, a team of researchers ensures that the pieces are historically correct.

Each piece is crafted through a rigorous process:  a sculptor begins the initial piece and upon final approval, a smaller mold is made.  Once the mold has been produced, several people contribute to hand paint each individual piece.

Handcrafting is still an important part of the manufacturing process as total automation would compromise the quality and accuracy of the product.  The figurines are made from polymer and resin, which is resistant to scratches and breakage.

Because of the process of making the pieces and the high attention to detail, all Fontanini pieces are heirloom quality and considered to be one of the most respected sets made for the Christmas season.  The nativity sets are available in many sizes from very small to life size.

MOSACK'S sells a variety of Fontanini figures for the Italian Nativity and Villiages.  The Holy Family has several product lines sold in 3.5, 5, 7-1/2, 12, 18, 20, 27, 50 and 70-inch measurements.  MOSACK'S also sells an impressive line of Fontanini Stables, Inns and Buildings for a nativity village.  Village Buildings are available in 5 and 7-1/2-inch measurements.  Stables are available in 3.5", 5", 7.5", 12" measurements.  The 2-1/2 inch figurines are in self-contained Nativity scenes and ornaments.

Our retail store in Mentor, OH, has a whole display space dedicated year-round to the Fontanini collectibles.  Now you can shop online for a variety of Fontanini merchandise to complement your collection.  You will find Bethlehem Village scenes, Life of Christ series, musical figurines, crucifixes, Glitterdomes®, ornaments and gift ware.
