The Characters

Plexiglass has a particular quality: if lighted, his margins become bright. Hiding a lamp in the basament, a form seems to gleam in its own light.
On the left, there are links for each character.

The Presepio itself

Here is a link to an illustrated ipothetic construction of presepio that I made for the journal of Pieve Ligure. Instead, in the near link, you can see a photo of the real thing.
