The Nativity Scene – Natale in Casa Cupiello

The Village Players 34660 Woodward Ave, BIRMINGHAM

The Nativity Scene imparts insights into why millions of immigrants left Italy and established their presepe (Christmas cribs) elsewhere, in the new Promised Land ... Through the image of the presepe, The Nativity Scene presents a dramatic debate over the place and significance of Italy's rich and powerful iconic heritage, and the myths and rituals attendant upon it as shapers of social life.
