The puppets touch the soul with invisible threads, tickling our hidden worlds with their stories of arms and love. Charlemagne, Orlando, Rinaldo and Angelica, good and bad, heroes and vanquished, Christians and Saracens, mythological monsters and magical figures. They represent the most successful historical-iconographic synthesis ever made, they are the result of the intertwining of highly specialized craft techniques and contain an enormous social and cultural value. The book reconstructs the history and art of the Opera dei Pupi - recognized by Unesco "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity" -, outlines the personalities of the protagonists and offers an unprecedented insight into one of the greatest expressions of inspiration Sicilian.
