Puglia: Il Presepe Vivente (Living Nativity) di Tricase

December 25, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - January 6, 2017 @ 8:30 pm

Tracase, almost at the tip of the Italian heel, is often called The Bethlehem of Italy. Supported entirely by volunteers from civic groups and schools, everyone from children to grown-ups (about 250 residents in total) dress in period costumes that transform the town into a Nativity pageant. The tradition was started in 1976 by resident Andrea Rizzo. — Sharon Sanders
