Advent, day 9; the 3 magi and baby Jesus

It is not at all unusual in Italy to see old facades left intact and just covered over with the newer inhabitant. A case in point is this Medieval church facade that hovers over a modern pizzeria.

What I like are the medieval sculptures, depicting the arrival of the 3 magi at the birthplace of the Christ child. That’s what we celebrate in Advent. Here it is, in a beautiful old form.
