Zampognaro (Shepherd with bagpipe)
The zampognaro (Shepherd with bagpipe) is a new introduction to the Willow Tree Nativity. The bagpipe is an ancient pastoral instrument played by shepherds and farmers for thousands of years and is used in many cultures to celebrate the nativity. In present day Italy, the zampognaro plays the Novena, the nine days leading up to Christmas...a celebration and announcement of the birth of Christ.
