Today we celebrate Epiphany.

Many of Rome’s churches move their nativity figures in real time, so the Three Magi arrive on January 6th, after a long journey across the nativity set.

Here are some elaborate settings with the Magi in place. Often you’ll also see a pizza restaurant and the occasional drunk guy.

Santa Maria in Aracoeli

Sant’Andrea della Fratte

Many feature local businesses. Here’s an Osteria.

San Giuseppe a Via Nomentana

San Lorenzo in Damaso

San Giacomo

This is one of the busiest I’ve seen. Hard to find Baby Jesus.
