Pupi Love


In Palermo’s historic center, generations of Sicilians and visitors to Sicily have been captivated by L’Opera dei Pupi di Palermo, a company started by marionette master Giacomo Cuticchio more than 80 years ago. Today his sons continue the tradition of marionette-puppetry (“pupi”) by presenting captivating productions featuring kings, angels, devils, Arabs, lords, ladies, and fantastic creatures who sing, dance, and sword-fight their way through different fantastic tales.
