Saint Peter's Nativity Scene

Like every year, here's a special photo report from your "Rome-biter" on Saint Peter's square to show off the traditional Nativity Scene in there.
This year the Nativity scene was manifactured by the atonomous region of Trentino Alto-Adige by the skills of the Amici del Presepio di Tesero.
The guys decided to throw in a bit of the Northern mood in Rome, thus using a set and costumes straight from the sud-tyrolean tradition: the stable belongs to a a typical baita and the characters decorating the place wear historical clothes of the region.

The message is that of reception, charity and mercy, extremely adherent to the upcoming Jubilee of Mercy and its meaning, expecially considering the recent issues with immigration and the situation of refugees in Europe.

Following, a good deal of details for your visual enjoyment!
