A Very Happy Christmas

It is traditional here in Italy to display a "Presepio" - usually a highly intricate representation of the birth of Christ in an even more intricate setting showing every type of scene that your space/budget will allow. The best (and most expensive) figures have long come from Napoli and the photo above shows a Presepio made in the 18th century for the King of Napoli, Carlo III.

With this, I wish you a very Happy and Joyful Christmas and a great New Year. I am still slaving away with our impending house move, so will be off-air for the next couple of weeks now.
Ciao a tutti e Buon Natale!

Yes, the bookcase will resurrect again soon. Spero.
