The story goes that St. Francis of Assisi after his pilgrimage to the Holy Places celebrated the Eucharist on Christmas Eve 1233 in Greccio where he prepared a representation of a crib with a mule and an ox, and since then this representation is considered the origin of Nativity Scenes or construction of cribs.

Since then, the idea spread throughout Europe thanks to the followers of the Franciscan order, the Poor Clares and the Capuchins.
