Historical notes

Otello Sarzi bequeathed to the Reggio community a very rich collection of puppets and marionettes, art objects and inventions, the result of his inexhaustible imagination. In addition to the experimental and traditional theater, the museum set-up also offers scenes from shows inspired by the fairy tales that characterized the production of Otello Sarzi and his family.
