In Custonaci at Trapanι region in South Sicily, the local residents hold, as in many places in Christendom, a show about the magic of the birth of Christ.

The event takes place twice, in Christmas on December 25th and in Epiphany on January 6th. The impressive theatrical show, which is held since 1983, takes place in Scurati cave (Grotta Mangiapane) that is called also Grotta Mangiapane.

The youngsters alongside with the elders of the city participate in these events. The occurrence of the traditional drama in the cave provides a spiritual mightiness and illustrates the lifestyle county’s inhabitants in the 19th century.

Italy background and overview
Italy became a nation-state in 1861 when the regional states of the peninsula, along with Sardinia and Sicily, were united under King Victor EMMANUEL II. An era of parliamentary government came to a close in the early 1920s when Benito MUSSOLINI established a Fascist dictatorship. His disastrous alliance with Nazi Germany led to Italy's defeat in World War II. A democratic republic replaced the monarchy in 1946 and economic revival followed. Italy was a charter member of NATO and the European Economic Community (EEC). It has been at the forefront of European economic and political unification, joining the Economic and Monetary Union in 1999. Persistent problems include illegal immigration, organized crime, corruption, high unemployment, sluggish economic growth, and the low incomes and technical standards of southern Italy compared with the prosperous north.
