About the Museum
This puppet theatre was painted by an artist influenced by the culture of the Bibienas for the Albicini family of Forlì. It is a rare and precious ensamble thanks to the rich equipment of backdrops, wings and marionettes (74 female and male figures, 9 horses and 1 monkey, made in Veneto around 1750).
