Collection Souvenir 35 cm
Rival of his cousin Orlando in conquering the beautiful Angelica, his virtues are smartness and intelligence. According to the Catanese tradition, he wears green clothes, he has a blond beard and haircut and he has a lion as a symbol on his armour.
Each puppet has been designed as a unique piece of design, which can be either hung or placed on an exhibition base. All our puppets are sold without a display base. In case you would like to buy one, just add it to your cart!
This Sicilian puppet has been hand-made by Francesco Salamanca according to the traditional building technique: the armour is made of embossed brass, the structure is made of wood and the clothes are hand-sewn.
Sicilian puppets have been protagonists of the Opera dei Pupi, a typical Sicilian theatre recognised by UNESCO as “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity”.
Prince of Montalbano, Rinaldo is the protagonist of a large number of epic-chivalric poems. The images of our Sicilian puppets may not be perfectly representative, but may differ in color, size, accessories present in the images.
Our packaging have been designed as a journey of senses that allows you to touch a piece of Sicily with your own hands: the scent of orange blossom flowers, the warmth of the sun on the skin and the lunar landscapes of Etna. These elements give life to what you will find inside our elegant packaging, but we leave you the surprise of discovering their content by opening it on your own!
