Recanati - Nativity of Saint Vito

The mechanized Nativity created by the craftsman - carpenter Leandro Messi, initially set up in the Church of San Vito, named after the patron saint of the city, during Christmas 2016, will be housed in the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. The new location is about 100 meters from the previous church. The name of the Nativity will not change and will remain the "historical" Nativity of San Vito. There are more than one hundred hand-made  statues in wood, ranging from 10 to 30 centimeters in height.
