Naples’ tradition of presepi

Every Christmas season (starting 8th Deember till 8th January) families in Naples (Campania, Italy) would set up at homes and in churches presepi – Christian nativity scenes. First presepio (presepe) was created by Saint Francis of Assisi in 1223, but the idea of nativity scenes started to develop in 16th century, becoming popular in 18th century.

The best place to see nativity scenes is Certosa di San Martino at Vomero in Naples – a museum with with the biggest in the world collecion of presepi or during visiting Napoli Sotterranea (Naples Underground) – and to buy (all your round): Via S. Gregorio Armeno (called Via dei Presepi) in Naples.
