Carmelites host Fontanini

JACKSON – Emanuele Fontanini, a fourth-generation member of the family now famous for their detailed nativity sets, spent a couple of hours at the Carmelite monastary on Saturday, Dec. 1. The tour is part of Fontanini Nativity’s 110th anniversary. The artist signed figuries and visited with collectors. The Carmelites have carried the Fontanini collection in their gift shop for generations and even keep a registry for families who purchase a new figurine annually. (Photo by Tereza Ma)
