La città di Pulcinella
LA CITTÀ DI PULCINELLA – La città di Pulcinella is located in the heart of the historic center of Naples, near the Duomo and San Gregorio Armeno. The main activity is the realization and sale of ‘600/’700 Neapolitan’ terracotta cribs and shepherds, valorising young Neapolitan artists and employing fabulous fabrics.
In tradition the crib is a plastic representation of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, set up during the Christmas season; shepherds are statues formed of various materials and placed in a realistically rebuilt environment.
The Neapolitan crib, in particular, is spread throughout southern Italy, sometimes adapted to local tradition, and is appreciated for glamor, spectacle, crowding of figures, urban setting, reproduction of very elaborate scenes, like the rides of the Magi.
Enchanted scenes of all the main nativity characters of the crib can be admired in addition to the “La città di Pulcinella” shop on the business website.
