In San Benedetto it shows handcrafted nativity scenes

Inaugurated yesterday by Mayor Pasqualino Piunti, it can be visited until to 8 January, in the atrium of the council chamber in viale De Gasperi (nei weekdays from Monday to Friday from 9 to 19, Saturday from 9 at 12.30), an exhibition of artistic cribs made by masters nativity scene artists from San Benedetto.

The review, promoted by the Presidency of the Municipal Council e curated by the councilor Mariadele Girolami, it includes seven valuable ones interpretations of the Nativity and landscapes made by Roberto Angelini, Aldo Chiaromonte, Francesco Favia, Gioacchino Mosca, Fabrizio Mosca, Eleonora Mosca and Vincenzo Pirri, all people animated by one great passion and who have dedicated their time and theirs over the years artistic and scenographic skills to carry out these works by taking care of every detail and the choice of materials. Many of them have exhibited in similar exhibitions of great prestige and are members of AIAP, the Italian Association of Friends of the Crib. The technical collaboration is was by Emmanuel Spagnolini.

“The idea of creating this exhibition – explains Mariadele Girolami – was born by talking to Roberto Angelini whom I had previously only known in his capacity as president of the Ponterotto district committee. We worked with him on this project which would give the necessary emphasis not only to the work of the nativity scene makers involved but which would highlight the concept of the nativity scene as an integral part of our culture, our values and Christian traditions. The other friends of the nativity scene thus made available in making their creations available for an exhibition to be hosted in the institutional space par excellence of the city. A special thanks goes to the President of the City Council Giovanni Chiarini for immediately joining the proposal by sponsoring the exhibition”.
