Here’s a twist that we hadn’t yet seen. A veritable mash-up, to borrow a contemporary word. Except instead of combining two digital music files or video feeds, the mash-up in question consists of merging two Italian holiday traditions.
In this bar-caffe‘s window, traditional panettoni and pan d’oro have been hollowed out, dipped in dark chocolate, and used as the scene (pl., pronounced SHAY-neh, meaning scenes, settings, or stages) for equally traditional presepi (Christmas Nativity scenes).
Not a bad idea at all. And come January when the figurines get put away, you can eat the rest.
