The pupi museum

L’Opera dei pupi is a popular form of theater born in the first half of 1800. From primordial marionnetes armed with tin, it developed into puppets with detailed features and elabo-rated stories.
In Syracuse, the pupi found their homebase in via della Giudecca, steps away from piaz-za Duomo. Travelers visiting town will have the opportunity to discover the delicious mu-seum in the picturesque neighborhood of Giudecca when you can admire the ancient family pupi.
 
Since several years the museum organizes guided tours for single, family, tour operators and individual groups, while in the theater located nearby, you can see the pupi in action. In the museum the pupi wait for their visitors, armed of shining swards and breastplates to marvel the eyes of their guests.
