Marcellano – Presepe Vivente


The town of Marcellano is a small town in central Umbria that is known for its spectacular Christmas pageant. In the pageant, the story of Mary and Joseph searching for an inn, finding a stable (presepe – a creche) , and so on are interacted with live people (hence the word “vivente”). Basically, the town is completely converted to a stage. And a production of this type of course requires a web site, right? Here it is the Presepe Vivente di Marcellano site. (Didn’t even know this site existed before we went; it would have been useful.) We basically wandered around and discovered different things. There were snacks and products of the region to buy. If you are in the region during Christmas, it is definitely something to visit.
