Italy’s Christmas Nativity Scenes


 I recently visited family in Italy and Christmas had just started to get going! We spent one of our days visiting the local town near Naples to look at the precipio and buy our own little bits and pieces from it.  Nearly every Italian town has a presepio, often of life-sized figures that re tell the night in Bethlehem. The scene often starts around baby Jesus in the manger and then expands from there….and my goodness it really does expand! I took photos of different elements of the Precipio  we visited to share with you. I even bought a set for my mother that she can add to her collection at home – she was of course over the moon to have a new piece to add!
