Dear Exhibitors,

We are pleased to inform you that the exhibition 100 NATIVITY SCENES IN THE VATICAN (Cento Presepi in Vaticano) will take place from Sunday, December 13, 2020, to Sunday, January 10, 2021.

In order to comply with the health regulations currently in force, the exhibition will be mounted this year under the Colonnade of St. Peter’s Square, with an inevitable reduction in the number of exhibits.

In the coming days, those exhibitors whose work has been selected for display by the Exhibition Commission will be contacted by email in order to make the necessary arrangements regarding the installation of their exhibits.

We take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to all those who expressed an interest in having their Nativity Scenes exhibited. It is our fervent hope that especially this year they be strengthened in their commitment to spreading this privileged sign of popular piety which gathers families and communities in the peace and serenity signified by the birth of Jesus.

Pontifical Council for the Promotion
of the New Evangelization

Let us be touched by the tenderness that saves.
Let us draw close to God who draws close to us. Let us pause to gaze upon the crib
”.

Pope Francis
