The nativity scene is certainly considered the real symbol of Christmas more than the Christmas tree, because it is a Christian symbol that represents the nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ and that in a true Christian home must never be missing.

Today the crib is represented in many ways where the great masters or simple amateurs represent the nativity of Jesus, unleashing their imagination.

In this period up to 6 January it is possible to visit in Trapani several artisan nativity scenes like that of Xitta which is exposed to the public until 8 January 2020 in via degli Anemoni, where for years at Christmas time it is exposed from 15.30 to 20, 00 for the attention of so many who love the simple things of the past.

Then there are the large nativity scenes that are exhibited in the churches of Trapani as for example, and we mention the most important ones, in the church of the Anime Sante del Purgatorio, which in the Christmas period leaves the austere atmosphere of Holy Week to host a large nativity scene, made in perfect Franciscan style with cork, paper and moss and the presence of shepherds moving mechanically.

Being the seat of the Sacred Groups of Mysteries, particularly significant is the presence of characters representing the workers in the manger, who take care of the Good Friday procession. The crib can be visited every day until 6 January from 9 to 12 and from 16 to 19.

Particularly striking is the Monumental Royal Mechanical Crib which is located inside the proto-basilica of S. Nicola, where the figurines that are found there are self-propelled and are inserted in a path between Roman and ancient Trapani, between faith and history and refers us to a Trapani that unfortunately no longer exists.

Also this year there will be in the Church of the College the exhibition of cribs curated by the Southern Presepistica Movement, in which it is possible to admire about 22 nativity scenes of local cribs.

Particularly appreciated was the one made entirely with bread last year.
