A photographic-philosophical volume by Buscarino, on two opposing visions of power: those of the Sicilian puppet characters Rinaldo and Orlando.
[On Puppets]. In this book the work of Buscarino focuses on the contrast between two heroes in the tradition of Sicilian puppet theater: Rinaldo and Orlando. Two distinct, opposing worldviews: one, expressed by Rinaldo, takes the traditional representatives of power as a symbol of disorder and injustice; the other, that of Orlando, sees power structures as the element of order and balance in the social universe. Buscarino visits the main Sicilian museums that conserve the legacy of the “Pupi” with the same gaze with which, over the last thirty years, he has observed the world of theater. And this book, with its non-rhetorical, strong, epic images, reflects the high quality of his previous works. An evocative photographic reportage in pursuit of the principal heirs to the art of the Pupi, recently granted the status of World Heritage.
