The town of Tricase, almost at the tip of the Italian heel in Puglia, is often called "The Bethlehem of Italy."That's because it hosts a living nativity or Il Presepe Vivente di Tricase. Supported entirely by volunteers from civic groups and schools, everyone from children to grown-ups (about 250 residents in total) dress in period costumes that transform the town into a nativity pageant.
