New York, NT 10013. Talk and dvd based photo presentation on "The Presepe Napoletano" by Anita Sanseverino and Lou Barella at the Italian American Museum on Thursday, December 28 at 6:30PM. The evening's program will feature a special unveiling of the Presepe Napoletano (Neapolitan Style Nativity Scene) made by artist John Miniero.

The Presepe Napoletano is more than a Nativity scene! It is a unique art form which combines the birth of Christ with the daily life of the people of Naples. This art form places Naples at the center of the monumental event of the birth of Christ! The art of the presepe reached its pinnacle in 18th century Naples but still continues today.
