- One of Italy's deeply felt Christmas traditions - reproductions of the Holy Manger—is the basis of this collection. It contains not just Italian-made models, but examples from all over the world—from Kenya, Latin America, the Ukraine and elsewhere. The figures are made from wood, terracotta, glass, papier-mâché and even coal. The museum was founded in 1953 and each year around October it arranges free courses on the techniques used in making these reproductions. The exhibition also includes collections of stamps, coins and medals on the same theme. Admission: free.
