Geometric decorations, chivalrous and religious themes, a variety of colors of green, yellow and blue, characterize Sicilian carts, figural sound whistles, puppets and armor, and still the artisanal and decorative production of Sicilian traditional musical instruments from imperial drums to the frame drum, from the terracotta jug (quartara) of Caltagirone to the marranzano. These are the sound objects between craftsmanship and tradition that punctuate the work and the festive tones of the ritual and religious ceremonies of folklore of popular tradition. The visitor will also be immersed in the festive and sonorous universe in order to pass on the oral tradition: from canti dei carrittera (carritter songs), to the cunti dei cantastorie (tales of the storytellers) linked to the opera dei Pupi (muppets opera), to the festive soundtrack of the imperial drum to that of the frame tambourine and marranzano through audiovisual projections. The event also aims to focus on enhancing the tradition of the drums of San Calogero of Agrigento in order to include the San Calogero of Agrigento Drums on the registration of the Register of Immaterial Heritage of Sicily (REIS).
