Once it entered a museum’s collection, puppets pass from the status of theatrical object from the one of heritage artifact. Though they often can’t be handled on stage anymore, their meaning and authenticity must be transmitted to the next generations.

The presentation and practical exercise will deal with their preservation, including handling and storage, the head principals of restoration, and some exhibition and presentation solutions than can be developed.
