Tony DeNonno, Award-winning TV Producer-Writer-Director, will present the “Celebrating New York’s Century-Old Papa Manteo Sicilian Marionette Tradition." From the beginning to end of his “Opera dei Pupi” presentation, with an authentic, hand-carved “Orlando Furioso” in hand, he invites and engages everyone of all ages to share their thoughts, knowledge, insights and ideas as this exciting 1,500 year-old Italian and Sicilian journey unfolds before your eyes. 

In the morning 8-10:30 am, join us for our Fifth Annual AIAE Breakfast Meeting. Registration is needed for the breakfast. See details both for the Breakfast and for the Festival below.
See you one and all! Buon divertimento!
