So, on the eve of the Christmas holidays you can see a real artistic competition in making big Christmas firs. Majestic choreography in the main squares of the Sorrento Peninsula, cheer up the eyes of tourists and citizens.
In the Sorrentine Peninsula, the pioneers of the installations are ecological: the Municipality of Sant’Agnello, a follow-up to the criticisms received by the citizens on the questionable and wasteful use of real fir trees. Moreover, a difference of the other municipalities is that of Sant’Agnello is the only administration that, rather than renting the lights every year. He satisfied, with a view to better and prudent management of public money, to buy his own tree, lights and decorations. The investment, a first sight higher than the rental costs, has been exceeded over the years. To the point of view of buying, another tree with a snow-covered appearance and thus increasingly enhance the others supplied, anticipated in a completely natural style.

But they will not be the only trees to be “recycled” after Christmas. It was decided, in fact, that the row of rates, which have been growing for years in narrow vases to delimit the sidewalks of Piazza Municipio. At the end of the holidays we find removed and “liberated” in the green parks of the municipality. In their place, once the terracotta pots have been “recycled” to be placed elsewhere; in the flower beds that appear below them, a row of the last new flowering saplings is expected to be planted as before. In short, at the end of the holiday the citizens of Sant’Agnello will find themselves with many new trees and 20 “liberated” rates.

But it will not only be the trees that are “recycled”. In addition to the bridge and the rolling lawn also the same bales of hay, which surround the monumental tree; store and re-use to create natural benches in the Oasis in the City. ”

In short, in Sant’Agnello you will admire a beautiful tree that is a friend of nature. For a wonderful Christmas atmosphere that will love the city that shows to love the public green.
