An Extraordinary Exhibit Not To Be Missed.
On public display outside Casa Belvedere from Dec. 11th – Jan. 10th.
The Solidarity Crèche was a gift by the Naples (Italy) Chamber of Commerce to the NYC Fire Department post the 9/11/01 tragic terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Each of the 120 pieces is hand-crafted by Italian artisans with meticulous attention to detail to honor the brave NYC firefighters, EMS & Police officers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
It has been on loan to Casa Belvedere since 2011, courtesy of the International Columbia Association of the FDNY. This is a unique Creche’ that rivals that of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in its scope, breathe, warmth, and heartfelt storytelling. It is not to be missed. Drive-bys are welcome.
