ROME, ITALY - 9 DECEMBER 2016: The Street Cleaners' Nativity Scene - set up over the past 40 years by Giuseppe Ianni, a street cleaner in the Cavalleggeri district - is seen here in Rome, Italy, on December 9th 2016.
Giuseppe Ianni started working on this nativity scene during his spare time 40 years ago, and has never stopped since then. Now retired, he continues to have an office here. Over the years, about two million people from Rome, together with tourists, governement and religious dignitaries, Heads of States and Popes have paid home to the work of the street cleaners.
For at least two centuries, churches in Rome have attracted visitors by setting up elaborate Nativity scenes, often with moving parts, flying comets and running water, thus leading to a nativity scene tourism in the Italian capital.
