Object Type:


Consisting of a nineteenth-century puppet theater, it is preserved complete with the proscenium, a set of scenarios (38 scenes complete with backdrops and wings), furniture and props, 91 puppets (about 40 cm tall), a rich tailoring (costumes, footwear, hats), around 30 scripts. Due to the characteristics of the puppets, including lead hands and feet, their origin has been traced back to the area of Veneto, Friuli, Venezia Giulia, while numerous scenes recall the painters-scenographers who worked for the Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
