About this product
- DescriptionThis first English - language study traces the history of Italian puppetry from its evolution in the 16th century. The earliest shows became popular among street performers, particularly in Naples, where performances drew crowds and were lucrative. While the 20th century saw significantly fewer puppeteers, due largely to ecomic decline, it was also a time for the growth of puppetry as serious creative expression. Other topics include: the golden ages of marionettes, glove puppets, fantoccini, pupi, and other forms; descriptions of episodic, dramatic performances kwn as rappresentanti figurati; and, in-depth studies of two marionette companies, Turin's Lupi and Catania's Fratelli Napoli.
