Not bad, considering it is all in Italian. Go to the Pupi (Puppet) museum first and review the plot of the play you will see (they change daily) so you can follow the plot.

A must see. Short exciting show. Very entertaining. Even though it was in Italiam and I couldn't undertand all, it was a great show.

Staged in a very small theatre this is not to be missed
The puppetry has to be seen to be believed. For non Italian speakers it is advisable to read the pamphlets before the show begins as the narration is entirely in Italian, although we were able to follow the show quite easily. The show lasts less than one hour and is highly recommended

We really enjoyed the show. If you are in town when there is a performance don't miss it. make sure to get a reservation; the theater is small and popular.

charming, but small and poorly labelled. They could make a fortune if they sold proper puppets, had videos of shows running maybe someone making puppets onsite in the traditional way
