World Puppetry Day March 21
The main purpose of this day was to highlight the philosophy of this association founded in Prague in 1929. To promote friendship, mutual aid, development and cooperation among nations. When you remember what the years after 1929 were, that’s just the right thing.
A theme for each year
The days of the puppet follow each other without resembling each other and each year its theme and its great witness.
- Joan Baixas in 2012: Today is a day of celebration
- Roberto De Simone in 2013
