A bit of history
The birth of the Christmas markets seems to have originated around 1400 in the territories between Germany and Alsace. In fact, the first recorded Christmas market took place in Dresden, on the Monday before Christmas in the year 1434. In the main square, the cream of the artisans met to display their works that recalled the nativity and advent. Initially, only the bourgeoisie was attracted, given the high cost of the objects sold in these markets. Over time, interest in these Christmas artisan exhibitions expanded to all cities near and far.
In the early nineties of the last century, the phenomenon of the Christmas markets had become widespread, in many European cities. In those years, the most important Italian Christmas markets were born, namely in the city of Bolzano and Trento.
