Sicilian Cart

Synopsis: The 70’s; I also recall a documentary by the catanese director Ugo Saitta where the end of the sicilian carts were put to light: “the carts had grown a third wheel”. The ‘piaggio Moto Ape’ (a motorised three wheeled cart) had been created and had taken over. In the 60/70’s television took over eliminating many puppeteers and their relative theatres; but where are they today? Thanks to many promising youngsters and the persistency of their elders, these traditions are not lost.
