Antonio Pasqualino International Puppet Museum

And the land of Comedia del Arte, opera, and theater, the Antonio Pasqualino International Puppet Museum has over 5000 items including marionette hand puppets and shadow puppets from all over the world with the aim of preserving and educating the greater world about the art of tapestry and its place in the performing arts.

The museum was founded in 1975 by the association of conservation of folk traditions. All year around the museum hosts events such as live puppet performances and exhibitions of puppetry around the world to highlight the importance of the art and cultivated excellent play and fun within the community. The Festival di Morgana takes place yearly and has great fun for all ages. For a day filled with excitement, we invite you to experience the International Puppet Museum or catch a show while in Italy.
