The nativity scenes not to be missed in Florence
From the one on the cathedral forecourt to the Pop one in the Uffizi
For the tenth year in a row, a large nativity scene with life-size terracotta statues will be on display on the parvis of Florence Cathedral from 8 December to the Epiphany. These are unique pieces made by hand by a historic kiln in Impruneta.
This year the sculptures representing the Holy Family, an angel, the ox and the donkey have been joined by a shepherdess and two sheep, donated to the Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore by the craftsman who made them, Luigi Mariani.
