Come and enjoy nativity scenes of Neapolitan art from San Gregorio Armeno on display at the Rome Temple Visitors’ Center all throughout the Christmas season, in a fairytale setting of lights and colours illuminating the temple grounds. There will also be nativity scenes of oriental Palestinian art, Roman folk art and numerous others in paper and crochet art.

The first mention of a nativity scene in Naples appears in a notarial deed of 1021, but the invention of the Neapolitan nativity scene is attributed to St Gaetano of Thiene, who arrived in Naples in 1534 and started the tradition of setting up nativity scenes in churches and private homes. Towards the end of the 17th century, the theatricality of the Neapolitan nativity scene was born, enriched by the tendency to mix the sacred with the profane. Nobles, bourgeoisie and common people competed to set up increasingly sophisticated scenographic installations. Since then, Neapolitan nativity scene art has remained unchanged for centuries.
