Presepe Vivente in Carpanzano, CS

Christmas may be behind us, but many towns and villages in Italy are still showcasing their living nativity scenes, or presepi viventi.  It is not uncommon to find these special presentations running for several days between Christmas Day (December 25) and the Epiphany (January 6).

This year, in Carpanzano, the presepe vivente had the townspeople re-enacting various activities from days past including weaving, cooking, shoe making, etc.  You could also sample some of the traditional foods of the town.
