Marco Saglimbeni (B.S. Biological Sciences, B.A. Italian Studies, and University Honors minor) successfully delivered a presentation titled “The Sicilian Pupi: Conveyors of Myth” at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon for the Western Regional Honors Conference on Saturday, April 8. His project explores cultural and neurological underpinnings of the traditional form of Sicilian puppetry known as “l’opera dei pupi”, and how this form of ritualistic and popular theater intersects with crucial characteristics of Sicilian history and society. Marco first started working on his project while taking Dr. Pacchioni’s Honors seminar “The Puppet Metaphor Across Media” in the spring of 2015.
