Nativity Scenes

Here are a sampling of nativity scenes (precepi) that I have seen during the Christmas season.

 A Madonna and Child surrounded by Angels on the corner of a building across from the Emergency Entrance of Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital on the Janiculum Hill.
The precepio in Richard Meier's Jubilee Church.

The precipio in Piazza San Pietro.

A fashionable precepio in Bologna.

The Holy Family in a skip loader bucket
on scaffolding above the Lungotevere.
