12 Cribs of Christmas 3

 
Crib number 3 is one of the 100 Presepe that we saw in the Salle de Bramante in Piazza del Popolo. The exhibition runs from the end of November to the beginning of January and is now in it's 40th year. There are actually 166 cribs on show from all over the world and all regions of Italy.
This beautiful wooden crib is from Sweden and was not the only Swedish element in our pre - Christmas visit to Rome. On our last evening we were lucky enough  to see a Swedish choir celebrating Santa Lucia, set against the magnificent background of Hadrian's Temple in Piazza di Pietra.
