Christmas all year round
San Gregorio Armeno ‘Christmas street’, this narrow street in the heart of the Centro Storico displays the famous presepi, the intricate Neapolitan nativity scenes, and their necessary accessories.
The picturesque campanile of the convent of San Gregorio Armeno towers overhead, and in December shoppers throng the streets (it can take ten minutes to walk 100 feet).
Clay models of politicians, actors and football figures share space with the cherubs and shepherds – new arrivals this year included Napoli’s star player Lavezzi and, unsurprisingly, Barack Obama.
