    This first English-language study traces the history of Italian puppetry from its evolution in the 16th century. The earliest shows became popular among street performers, particularly in Naples, where performances drew crowds and were lucrative. While the 20th century saw significantly fewer puppeteers, due largely to economic decline, it was also a time for the growth of puppetry as serious creative expression. Other topics include: the golden ages of marionettes, glove puppets, fantoccini, pupi, and other forms; descriptions of episodic, dramatic performances known as rappresentanti figurati; and in-depth studies of two marionette companies, Turin's Lupi and Catania's Fratelli Napoli.

    John McCormick (1918--2010), the author of the definitive Santayana biography, George Santayana: A Biography, was Professor of Comparative Literature at Rutgers University and Honorary Professor Emeritus at the University of York.
