The 9-11 Solidarity Creche is now on display this holiday season at Casa Belvedere through January 7th. Il Presepio Della Solidarietà is a gift of friendship and solidarity from the Naples, Italy Chamber of Commerce to The New York City Fire Department in honor of the victims of 9/11 and the brave Firefighters, Police and EMS workers that made the ultimate sacrifice. The crèche was donated to The New York City Fire Department on December 19, 2001 at a solemn ceremony organized by the Associazione Internazionale Magna Grecia, in conjunction with the Regional Cultural Association of Campania.

This handcrafted work of art was created by master artisans of the Campania Region of Italy and is consistent with techniques that date back to the seventeenth century. It occupies a fifty-four square feet area and is comprised of 120 pieces including 83 figurines and 28 animals. The majestic set is the work of Master Giovanni Sinno, whereas the figures were modeled by master artisans Alfredo Molli, Ulderigo Pinfildi and Giovanni Sinno himself.
