Rome's puppet theatres

Puppetry has been delighting Italian children for hundreds of years, and Rome has a few venues for viewing true puppeteers in action. Sometimes you can find a show in English, but the storyline is visually explanatory and kids don't seem to care whether they understand the words or not.

The outdoor theatres on the Janiculum Hill, and in EUR on Largo K. Ataturk, are said to be the only places to view the true puppeteers left in Rome. Both are free, although a small donation is expected. You can also see shows near the Janiculum at Teatro Verde, Circonvallazione Gianicolense 10 (tel 06.588.2034), a children's theatre where they also put on musicals and marionette shows. Most puppet shows go on from around 4pm till 7pm on weekdays and 10.30am until 1pm at weekends.
