Sandy Allison of Claysburg stands next to her Fontanini Nativity Set that is on display at Lower Claar Church of the Brethren near Claysburg. The Fontanini pieces are made in Italy. It took Allison approximately 25 hours to set up the pieces. Fontanini is a family concern which began with the patriarch, Emanuele. He was at first an apprentice figurine-painter to another company but in 1908 started Fontanini as a small local business in a single room in the tiny Tuscan town of Bagni di Lucca, Italy.
