A comedy with an exciting plot illustrating the dynamics of love in all its aspects, it is staged in the traditional puppets’ theatre, alternating comic moments  with more lyrical situations thanks to the use of traditional rod puppets (Sicilian pupi-like) but also of flying puppets representing magical spirits, and of  special effects (as a theatre in the theatre). Text is reduced to the essential leaving space to movement and music.
