The deeds of these characters are processed through the rework the material contained in novels and the poems of the carolingio cycle, by the puppets, say exactly pupi (in the Sicilian language "pupazzi").

The Opera the Pupi affirmed in southern Italy and especially in Sicily in the second half of the Century XIX and the first half of the XX. Rich fancy and carved with a wooden structure, the pupi had some real armour and several movements in the middle school or from Palermo and Catania belongings. The obvious difference was in the joints: bright and early snodabili (but difficult to manoeuvre), heavier and fixed with second (arts but the simplest ones) manoeuvre.

The puparo cured the show, the scenarios, the pupi, and with a stamp of particular voice he could give suggestions, ardour and pathos represented to the epic scenes. The pupari, although you are often very illiterates, knew works by heart like: the Chanson de Roland, Jerusalem freed and Orlando furious, the most represented works in.
