MEXICO, (December 11, 2021).- The Mexican state of Puebla is in charge of decorating the Christmas trees and nativity scenes of the Vatican Museums with traditional crafts this year within the framework of the event organized by Mexico inaugurated today, along with a photographic exhibition on the traditions and symbolic places of this region.
Tourists and Italians who stroll along the avenue de la Conciliation during these festivities, which links the Vatican city with the Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, will be able to visit the open-air photographic exhibition on the state of Puebla (central Mexico) , reported the Mexican Embassy to the Holy See.
The exhibition, made up of twenty photographs on the landscape and historical places of that Mexican region, seeks to “highlight the tourist, historical, gastronomic and cultural attractions” of this community.
After not being able to celebrate last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mexican art will once again adorn the Christmas trees and nativity scenes in the Vatican Museums and the Paul VI Hall, where Pope Francis holds his audiences, this year with traditional elements of the Puebla state.
Among the decorative elements highlights the details in amate paper, a type of traditional paper of the region, embroidered in bright colors, as well as palm spheres woven by hand, cloth dolls dressed in traditional costumes, Christmas balls typical of the city of Chignahuapan or Talavera ceramics, a World Heritage Site.
Within the framework of the Mexican Christmas in the Vatican event, organized by the Mexican embassy in the Vatican and the Hands of the World program, a nativity scene of figures of about two meters high made of jute fabric will be installed in the Vatican Museums.
Mexican Christmas in the Vatican is an event that has been held for three years and that takes a different region of Mexico as the protagonist each year, such as the state of Campeche in 2017 or Tamaulipas in 2018, to give visibility to culture and traditions of these regions.
