Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel

Arte popolare napoletana

Today: 10.00 AM - 6.00 PM

Permanent exhibition

One area of our museum's collection of miniatures is dedi- cated to the Neapolitan folk art of nativity-scene making. The exhibition with its scenes of typical everyday Mediter- ranean life conveys a unique insight into the life of the citizens of 18th-century Naples. The Neapolitan folk art of nativity-scene making originated in the depiction of the Holy Family at the end of the 15th century. The Bourbon King Charles III was responsible for the heyday of Mediterranean nativity-scene making. His passion for the art form was passed on to well-to-do citi- zens, monasteries and churches. Our exhibits on the 3rd floor of the museum were created by the Neapolitan nativity-scene artist Mario Capuano in many months of meticulous craftsmanship. He created a scene covering some 15 m2 whose buildings, figures and more than a hundred accessory items represent an au- thentic depiction of everyday life in 18th-century Naples. Nativity-scene making has been a passion of the Capuano family since 1840. Among their recent important works are nativity scenes for the pilgrimage church in San Giovanni Rotondo and for King Juan Carlos of Spain.
