The puppet theatre comes from the popular theater of puppets that was born at the beginning of the 19 century. The puppeteers give life to the chivalrous stories taken out from Italian Renaissance poems. The Syracuse’ s puppeteers carry this tradition on since 1923 and their experience is the only one in Syracuse.
