Hotel Piazza Bellini

San Gregorio Armeno street

Naples is the place where the Christmas still have the taste of the Italian tradition.
Proof of this is the crowd that characterizes San Gregorio Armeno, the central street where artisans realize the little statues for the crib.
The multitude of colorful stalls, the objects on display, the crowd strolling and buy: this road is worth a visit even if the cribs are not your thing.
The traditional Neapolitan crib is famous all over the world: rich landscapes and figures let the story changes from day to day until the triumphant arrival of the Three Kings in the presence of the Child Jesus on the day of the Epiphany.
In their open shops the artisans create with a mastery that is transmitted from generation to generation.
San Gregorio Armeno is also frequented by the Neapolitans, since they use to enlarge the crib of a new element every year.
And every year, with the classic verve that distinguishes them, go in search of statues depicting famous people from the world of sports, entertainment, politics.
In San Gregorio Armeno there is everything you need to compete in the realization of the most beautiful crib: the houses of cork, the windmills, waterfalls animated by electronic devices: nothing is left to chance.
To understand the secrets of master craftsmen, however, it is best to explore the road less busy periods, to admire this secular work with the necessary calm.
