Ancient uses and customs

Presepe Vivente

The historical representation that populates the streets of the village of Ricadi


and Tradition

Which involves the whole village

In 2017 I had the pleasure of being invited to immortalize one of the main Christmas traditions in all of Italy, specially in the south of the country.


The streets of the village are prepared for the whole week before the event, with installations that want to reproduce the climate of Palestine of 2000 years ago.


All the actors are obviously ordinary men and women who for a day step into the shoes of the typical characters of the nativity scene, shepherds, farmers and obviously all the sacred characters.
