The Barcelona Nativity Scene Association rebuilds the city's traditional nativity scene in the courtyard of the Frederic Marès Museum. This year the theme will be the union between Roman and current Barcelona.

The different scenes of the manger will be represented among the Roman ruins of Barcelona and homage will be paid to Lucio Minicio Natal Quadronio, a Roman patrician who according to some testimonies had a certain relevance in the political and social life of Barcino, although he is better known for being the Barcelona's first Olympic champion. The traditional nativity scene has a parallel lighting installation inspired by the Roman temple of Vesta and designed by the students of the Elisava School, with the supervision of Maria Güell.
