A great pizza nativity scene was created by members of the Neapolitan Pizzaiuoli Association, APN, in the Basilica of Santa Chiara in Naples.
After the edible nativity scene created a few days ago by the Pizzeria 900 in via San Pasquale Scura in Naples, now comes this great work dedicated to one of the symbols of the Neapolitan city in the world, created to celebrate the third anniversary of the entry of the art of the Neapolitan pizza maker in the Unesco world intangible heritage list.
The work, completely prepared by hand by APN pizza makers together with the artisans of the San Gregorio Armeno crib, will remain on display in the basilica until 10 January. A crib made of wood and cork, worked instead of with putty and glue with flour and water, like pizza.
The nativity scene was then cooked to make the structure more resistant. A monumental work, three meters in diameter by two meters in height. The president of APN Sergio Miccù, creator of the initiative, explained how in this work "the two oldest arts of the city of Naples" meet, thanking the monks of Santa Chiara for their hospitality. "We are in a difficult period but we could not miss the celebration of the third anniversary of the entry into the Unesco heritage for which we have fought so much," said Miccù.
