Exhibits of new nativity scenes built by individuals and groups are becoming increasingly popular. At the annual “100 Presepi Exhibition” in the Piazza del Popolo in Rome, the section “Presepi del Mondo” features contributions from Croatia, Egypt, El Salvador, Peru, Uganda, Iraq, Taiwan, and more. Another section is devoted to presepi made and submitted by school children, churches, labor unions, and private clubs all over Italy. These craft projects, often done by groups, often set the Nativity locally.
