  • If you are in Acireale is a must visit-the visit is free but we received more explanations and clarifications that in other museums or paid visits. There not only the puppet history but the history of a part of Sicily we found interessantisssimo.

  • Fascinating collection of pupi, Sicilian puppets! Four rooms you can visit accompanied by a municipal clerk who sent us the curiosity and passion for this art Sicilians not to be missed

  • The ancient art of puppets, the most popular sight of Sicily from the past, condensed into 4 rooms where you can see a detailed exhibition of these wonderful puppets (although we call them that is truly an understatement). Admission is free and the guide very helpful and competent, he talked of the construction technique and the difference between the two schools of construction, the Carpenter and Palermo. The puppets that are preserved are the school Carpenter, therefore, larger than those of Palermo but also more static, and can only move his arms.
