18th-century Neapolitan nativity scene

Museums Free
Pessebre setcentista

The Ajuntament (city hall) welcomes the holidays with an exhibition of Neapolitan nativity figures and scenes from the Museu Etnològic de Barcelona and the Museu Frederic Marès. The figures are the result of strong economic, political, and social ties between Mallorca and Naples towards the end of the Middle Ages, which led to the strong influence of the Italian Catholic tradition in Mallorcan culture, especially in the tradition of the nativity, which was deeply rooted in Italy at the time. The exhibition will be in the Ajuntament patio gallery in Plaça Sant Jaume.
