Palermo Italy Events
For a month, Palermo will host a series of outdoor events to celebrate the 100th birthday of the old Don Tano, the famous Sicilian puppet. This festival offers you the opportunity to see him in action at the Antonio Pasqualino Puppet Museum. Hosted by the Italian Museum of Art and Culture and Piazza della Repubblica di Parma, the event is a great example of what to do in the city of Paleri this year to celebrate the centenary of one of Italy's most important cultural institutions.
The streets of Palermo will be filled with the smell of cooked octopus, boiled snail and other delicious foods. During the festival, in the streets of Palersmo, you can find dishes that are part of the popular tradition of the city, such as boiling octopus and boiled snails, as well as a variety of other specialties.
There are a number of parades, festivals and concerts in the cities of Italy and on the island of Sicily. There are special traditions and famous events that take place in Sicily, but most activities focus on the beaches, where many cities organize festivals, parades and fireworks. Classical New Year's concerts are also held in Palermo and many other Italian cities. The city organises a free public party every year on New Year's Eve in front of all public buildings and churches.
The regional, national and international relevance of the festival provides a prominent framework for the entire puppet-playing community and promotes Opera dei Pupi at all levels. The 45th Morgana Festival is therefore the reference theme, the first of its kind in the world and the only one in Sicily and also in Italy.
The focus of this edition is on the 12 companies from all over Sicily that will join the new Opera dei Pupi, which is due to be officially launched in 2018, as well as the first opera of the year.
