Zoom In: The Neapolitan Presepio

Thursday, December 15, 2022
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Join Carnegie Museums from Home for our final virtual event of 2022 as we take a closer look at the Neapolitan Presepio. A centuries-old tradition in Naples and southern Italy, the presepio is an elaborate nativity scene recreated with miniature figures arranged in a detailed panorama of 18th-century life in Naples. Carnegie Museum of Art’s Curatorial Assistant of Decorative Arts and Design, Alyssa Velazquez, will guide us through the superbly modeled humans, animals, angelic figures, and architectural elements which have made this artwork a Pittsburgh holiday tradition since 1957.
