The Neapolitan
Nativity Scene

a tradition famous throughout the world

The Neapolitan Nativity Scene: an ancient tradition that is continued and respected by the artisans of the Neapolitan workshops.

The most famous street, where to find the "Pastori" (The characters of the Neapolitan Nativity Scene) is Via San Gregorio Armeno, in the heart of Naples. Here the artisans pass down from generation to generation the mastery and the most sophisticated techniques to create their terracotta works, modeling the characters down to the smallest details, and dressing them with fine fabrics. The reference is the 18th century Neapolitan Nativity scene, a splendid example of which can be admired in the San Martino Museum.
