PublicationsThis volume accompanied the photograph exhibit: "NativitÓ nei Sacri Monti del Piemonte e della Lombardia" - Nativity in the Sacred Mounts of Piemonte and Lombardia. It is the outcome of the collaboration between the Documentation Centre of the European Sacred Mounts, Calvaries and Devotional Complexes and the theatre company, Gruppo del Cerchio. The itinerant show was hosted from July 2007 to January 2008 at the Sacred Mounts of Belmonte, Crea, Domodossola, Ghiffa, Oropa, Orta and Varallo.
The joint work of Pier Ilario Benedetto, author of the photographs, and Carola Benedetto, who prepared the catalogue, was also exhibited at the Piemonte Regional Council from the 5th to the 28th of April 2007.

The collection of photographs, Natività nei Sacri Monti del Piemonte e della Lombardiacontains a selection of pictures taken by the architect and photographer Pier Ilario Benedetto, who, in the Nativities visited in each Sacred Mount, was able to capture, with black and white photos and close-up views, the human but also celestial aspect of the figures. The statues appear near and divine at the same time, simple and absolutely perfect:  not just faces but real signs that verge on a universe of serenity.
