Presepi in Poffabro

Poffabro is a village of  about 180 people.  Every single window had a unique handcrafted nativity scene. I believe the theme was crib between the cribs. I’m not quite sure what that means, but I wish I had known that before we went and I would’ve looked at them closer.

Our town Maniago was offering a free shuttle bus to village (about 10 minutes away) so we hopped on to check it out.

Benny loved the bus!

The kids loved looking at the “little villages” as Benny would say.  Some were quite large and intricate and others were tiny.

I thought this was interesting.  I wondered why they were all buried…

Vin Brule is always a good idea!

And of course, every town in Italy has a beautiful church.
