The beautiful village of Pieve di Monti di Villa, one of the hamlets that make up Bagni di Lucca hosted the Presepe Vivente this year. The whole village stepped back in time and the residents from the area donned costumes and took up their ancient tools to create a living nativity.
I was very sorry to be unable to attend, but we have the next best thing. Two local photographers were there and I can show you their gorgeous photos.
Paul Anthony Davies from San Cassiano took these photos.
Here is the work of David Bonaventuri from Montefegatesi.
I truly love these events, especially the way people of all ages are involved to create something beautiful. I’m sure everyone who attended had a wonderful time.
