PEPPENINO (IGNAZIO PUGLISI)

Peppenino is one of the precious characters of the Opera dei Pupi by Ignazio Puglisi. Defined as the “Operating Prince”, he led one of the most important Pupari families for years. After his death, the nephew Ignazio Manlio took the company lead. As a proof of the importance of the Opera dei Pupi in the Sicilian tradition, it was added in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists in 2008. The room, which takes its name from the character Peppenino, extends to about 45 square metres. It has a mezzanine and an adjacent terrace with a view of the court.
