In the Naples and the Amalfi Coast episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy explores an artisan city street dedicated to the Christmas holiday.
The street Via San Gregorio Armeno is home to a cluster of artisans who make small terracotta and wooden figurines. The area is famous for its traditional Christmas nativity scenes, but over the years the subjects have expanded to include earthy peasant scenes and celebrity caricatures. Walk down the street to visit a variety of artisans including Luigi Cesarini and his 130-year-old family workshop at Via San Gregorio Armeno, 11.
