Caltagirone: my favourite Presepe !

In these days Caltagirone is not simply the triumph of pottery as usual, but it's also a lovely animated town by beautiful Presepi for all Christmas holidays
With a combined ticket you can visit about 16 different presepi walking all around the streets and churches of the historical centre
my favourite one (and the best to me!)
is not included into the traditional route.
The Chiesa del Carmine is the perfect location for
a marvellous Presepe

This Presepe was exhibited at Christmas 1999 for the opening of the European   Parliament in Strasburgo
It's a very detailed animated Presepe made in terracotta and canvas almost 80 extended.
