Sicily’s puppet theater, also known as Opera dei Pupi is as heart-warming as it is colourful and enchating. Narrating tales of bandits, dragons, princesses and chivalric knights, this is a unique tradition that has continued without interruption for more than 200 years.
Visit one of the puppet schools of Palermo where puppet-making is a family affair, done using traditional methods. Guided by an expert puppet-maker, learn the history behind these exquisite works of art as well as
the techniques used to create hand and rod puppets. After a brief introduction, build your very
own Sicilian puppet to take home with you!
