It is again the winter solstice, and so the second year
of life of our magazine starts. The great number of readers, who are visiting our
site, stimulate us to work even harder. For this reason we are trying
to give to our researches an organization more intellegible, showing most
the logical lines of crib discourse.
The articles, published in the previous numbers of our crib magazine,
were written according to authors'main interests. They had the purpose of
arousing an intellectual curiosity and supporting a general approch
to this wonderful subject. Continuity in the choice of articles
helped us to find some particular arguments, too. It will be interesting
to go into them in the following publications.
1) Historical and symbolic subject: all the articles dedicated to history of crib
(and on Christmas) and to the symbolic value of various elements that make up it;
2) Art and Craft: artists and craftsmen who have been working in the crib
sector; pages dedicated to the publication of cribs suggested by crib-lovers;
3)The Background: streets, squares, churches, monuments which are linked to
our discourse one way or another;
4) The crib in the world: description of several crib traditions and, when
it is possible, comparision with the Neapolitan crib.
Our magazine will dedicate to each argument a special section.
We always hope to arouse your curiosity about one of the most interesting
cheerful and cultural events.
