Vatican's famed nativity display opens to public

More than 120 nativity scenes made in a wide variety of styles and materials, including shells, chocolate and watch parts, are on display in an exhibition in St Peter's Square at the Vatican.

The traditional exhibition of "100 nativity scenes," now in its 45th edition, brings together miniaturised representations of the birth of Jesus from Italy and 15 other countries, including Germany, Peru, Indonesia and the United States.

Under the Berini colonnade, hundreds of visitors are flocking to see all types of nativity scenes, from the traditional Neapolitan-styled to more unusual ones.
