Written by Carlo Goldoni, the illustrious Italian playwright, it surely is the most representative text of the Commedia dell’Arte’s Theatre.
Absolute lead is the mask of Arlecchino, here represented by a string puppet, who counterpoints with his jokes the love affairs of the other characters. In our show there will be rod puppets for the classical masks of the Commedia dell’Arte (Pantalone, Brighella, Colombina, il Dottore), seen in their typical satirical roles, with a few particular references to our present day! Between duels and dramatic turns of events, fun is guaranteed in a show that will make the public of all ages laugh!

The show has been represented in numerous plazas, schools and cities, and has been hosted by the festival “La Macchina dei sogni” 2009 edition, with the artistic direction of Mimmo Cuticchio, and by the “Alpe Adria Puppet Festival” 2009 organized by the CTA (Centro Teatro Animazione) of Gorizia.
