About this event

Emanualue Fontanini, fourth generation of the House of Fontanini will be at the Shrine Gift Shop, November 27 from 3- 6 pm

Due to the lifelike sculpting, meticulous hand painting and attention to detail, the highly collectible Fontanini® pieces make great gifts for Christmas, weddings, birthdays or just because.

Come by November 27, 2022,  from 3 - 6 pm, to meet and greet our friend, Emanuele, the great grandson of the patriarch and founder of the renowned House of Fontanini®.

Emanuele had been a special friend of the Shrine Gift Shop and has graciously offered his time on The Tour for over 30 years.

After a 2-year absence due to Covid restrictions, we are excited to have him back! You will be delighted by his charm, warmth, and generosity as he shares stories and welcomes all visitors.

Emanuele personally signs all new Fontanini® product purchases, as well as a limited number of previously purchased pieces depending on available time constraints.
