Figli d'arte Cuticchio
Sicily is famous for its puppet theatres and the one you should visit when in Palermo to get the real feel is Figli d'arte Cuticchio. The repertoire is extensive with classic shows such as Orlando's Madness about love between a young couple, or special shows, famous operas such as Don Giovanni or Macbeth, or just a guided tour to see how the whole puppet opera works.
Did you know that to assembly a stage for one show might take up to 8 hours? A lot of hard work is put into performing and to keep the beautiful tradition of puppet opera going.
The association 'Figli d'Arte Cuticchio' have performed the traditional Sicilian marionette theatre since 2005 in the whole of Italy, Japan, Spain, Russia, Germany, Turkey, Portugal and Czechoslovakia.
They have brought some joy, fun and entertainment in many countries of the world.
