GREAT POPULAR NATIVITY SCENE

Unique pieces, manufactured in silver sterling with the brand Leitão & Irmão.

TRADITION AND MANUFACTURE

The tradition of the popular Nativity Scene began with St. Francis of Assisi, during Christmas in 1223, with the representation of the Nativity in the Greccio forest in Italy. With the authorisation of the Vatican, the representation with real figures highlighted the Nativity Scene as popular work. This outdoor public display took the Nativity Scene from the solemnity of the temple into the familiarity of everyday life and then into the intimacy of home. The annual assembly of the Nativity Scene becomes a family story and its extent goes beyond individual beliefs.

It is within this context of extent and universality, included in the 800 years of representation of the Nativity Scene, that Leitão & Irmão started the original modelling of the Nativity Scene. A collectible work, whose variety allows a customised representation.

The currently available pieces are part of an already modeled wide-set, to be made available by 2023, thus marking the 800th anniversary of the Nativity Scene as a work for all.
