400 Piece Nativity Set in Rhode Island
Eugenio “Geno” Milano, an 80-year-old, said it all started many years ago when he was just a kid. His father, a proud Italian Catholic, started the annual tradition of putting up a Nativity scene around the Christmas holiday, calling it “Eugenio’s Presepio-Nativity Scene.”
Milano had originally built the display on the third floor of his home which took up an entire room. Then he moved it to the first floor.
Originally, he built his display on the third floor of their home, but it took up an entire room. Then, he used the first floor of his home.
One year, he set it up at the Holy Ghost Church.
As he and his wife got older, the display just kept getting bigger, so he made an outdoor viewing.
He starts setting up the display in October and changes it up each year.
Milano has ordered pieces from Italy and he crafted nearly all of the homes on display, and there’s no detail too small – right down to the moss he uses to display the animals to make it look more real-life.
Visitors are welcome to come and see the display each year.
This is just a few of the samplings you might see. (Photos from WJAR).
