This show was born from the intuition of making the famous stories of the champions of France enjoyable and amusing, interpreted by glove puppets who narrate them not in the traditional serious way of the Opra of the Sicilian pupi but in a new and ironic way. There are two different episodes “Durendal sword” and “Astolfo on the moon” , both are indipendent (last 45 minutes each) even if they have the same characters.
