From May, 16th to July, 18th, the amazing scenery of the Valley of the Temples will host one of the prides of the Sicilian culture and tradition, the Opera of the Sicilian Puppets. Two main characters of the UNESCO World Heritage in Sicily cross and enrich themselves in a perfect pair: on one side the massive and astonishing element, that is the temples of one of the most visited site in Sicily, on the other the intangible yet striking element, that is the oral tradition of the storytellers (cuntastorie), told through the happenings of the traditional Sicilian puppets.
Exhibits, shows, lectures and laboratories, all about the Opera of the Puppets, will go through the thin yet lively trace of the memory and of the folk tales. The initiative is called “The Knights of the memory -Exhibit on the chivalric tradition in Sicily” and includes a creative laboratory which is part of an educational path for children, through the construction of the Sicilian puppets.
The exhibit will be open every day, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
