-------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------

The objectives of such a training action can be divided into two equally important parts:
construction and manipulation, essentially a technical aspect, and the work of puppeteer (manipulator), thus focusing on generic aspects of theater, in terms of dramatic expression, and particular aspects of puppet manipulation, specifically the manipulation of the techniques on which focused on construction.
However, it is not intended to train actors / manipulators, since this would not be possible, but rather to transmit to those who are in some way interested in the puppet phenomenon (either due to professional circumstances,
either out of mere curiosity or interest) technical knowledge, on the one hand, which allows them to develop their skills as puppeteers on their own ability to animate inanimate objects.
