The “Vanni Scheiwiller” International Nativity Scene Museum is located in Castronuovo San'Andrea, a small town in the province of Potenza. The Museum is part of the museum complex which includes the International Museum of Graphics, the Library and the “Guido Strazza” Atelier. The International Nativity Scene Museum is made up of 200 nativity scenes from the donations of the Milanese publisher Vanni Scheiwiller and the art historian Giuseppe Appella, increased over the years by numerous bequests from internationally renowned artists and artisans from various backgrounds. These are the nativity scenes made in Krakow and collected, out of passion and love for their roots, by the Polish artist Alina Kalczyńska, wife of Vanni, who already in 2014 decided to allocate the collection of nativity scenes from all over the world to Castronuovo. The Museum hosts temporary exhibitions where nativity scenes from all over the world are exhibited and which enter into relationship with the museum collection.
