The nativity scene (or crib) is a depiction of the birth of Jesus, derived from medieval traditions.

The term derives from the Latin praesaepe, ie crib, manger, consisting of first and prae = saepes = wall or place that has a front fence.

The tradition, mainly Italian, dates back to St. Francis of Assisi in Greccio in 1223 created the first living representation of the Nativity. From the seventeenth century the crib began to spread into the homes of the nobility in the form of "ornaments" or real miniature chapels. Only in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century the crib is also coming in the apartments of the bourgeoisie and the common people.


Il presepe (o presepio) è una rappresentazione della nascita di Gesù, derivata da tradizioni medievali.

Il termine deriva dal latino praesaepe, cioè greppia, mangiatoia, composto da prae = innanzi e saepes = recinto, ovvero luogo che ha davanti un recinto.

La tradizione, prevalentemente italiana, risale all'epoca di San Francesco d'Assisi che nel 1223 realizzò a Greccio la prima rappresentazione vivente della Natività. Dal XVII secolo il presepe iniziò a diffondersi anche nelle case dei nobili sotto forma di "soprammobili" o di vere e proprie cappelle in miniatura. Solo fra la fine dell'Ottocento e l'inizio del Novecento il presepe arriverà anche negli appartamenti dei borghesi e del popolo.
