Some history:
Presepe was designed and built by Mr. Mario Andreoli, who worked on the railway in the past and now he is in retirement at the moment. Since 1976 he has devoted his life to the realization of this unique project, and after 30 years, he finally managed to cover the entire hill. At last, Presepe sparkled like a rainbow at Christmas 2007 and was immediately added to the Guinness World Records. 6 miles of electric cables, 15,000 fires, 300 figures at full-scale which were made of the processed or unused materials were spent for implementation of this project. Since 2008, Presepe is also environmentally safe. Photovoltaic factory was built especially for it and this factory supplies electricity to maintain it, by the way, and its consumption in the last mountain was 13.440 kWh / year.
