100 Presepi crib exhibition in Rome

24 Nov-7 Jan. Rome has numerous Christmas cribs on display at this time of the year, the best-known of which is 100 Presepi in Piazza del Popolo. The 42nd edition of this annual international nativity crib exhibition at Sala del Bramante can be visited daily from 10.00-20.00, including Christmas Day, until 7 January.

Each year the 100 Presepi exhibition hosts some 150 nativity scenes from Italy and more than 40 other countries. In addition to contemporary reproductions of traditional 18th-century Neapolitan and Sicilian cribs, and 19th-century Roman mangers, there are modern versions made from wood, papier-mâché and terracotta, as well as unconventional materials such as sand, rice, pasta, nuts and bolts.
