THE CRIBS

written by Beata Cox

Ostuni città bianca

For centuries these artisans use the "hut" as an incubator of events that occurred during the year and as an instrument of satire.

There is therefore no surprise that among the shepherds in the nativity will discover that love Jesus' Child unusual pastor with the features of Barak Obama or Angela Merkel or even see the characters in a crib including Madonna wearing the mask to guard against infection with the H1N1 virus.

To enjoy all the way to visit the shops is preferable to program it in the morning because the afternoon is always more crowded and it becomes difficult to see the craftsmen at work.

Each shop has its own style in creating figurines and nativity scenes, and lovers can pay a statue handcrafted even 1000euro, but you can also choose from figurines simpler less expensive.

While you do take the embarrassment choice as the most original gift to take home not forget to try the classic Roccoco one of the many specialty of Neapolitan Christmas confectionery.
