This study analyzes the folkloric genres that comprise the repertoire of the marionette theater in Sicily. Here, epic, farce, saints’ lives, bandits’ lives, fairytales, Christian myth, and city legend offer the vehicles by which puppeteers comment upon, critique—perhaps even negotiate—the relationships among the major classes of Sicilian society: the aristocracy, the people, the clergy and the Mafia. The lynchpin of the repertoire is the Carolingian Cycle and, in particular, a contemporary version of The Song of Roland known in Sicily as The Death of the Paladins, a text which illustrates the means by which the Carolingian heroes—Charlemagne, Roland, Renaud, Ganelon, and Angelica—augment saints, bandits, Biblical figures and Sicilian folk heroes to provide the marionette theater its rhetorical function: the articulation and dissemination of the tools of Sicilian identity.

La belle Gisele, soeur de Charlemagne, et le fringant Milon, duc d'Anjou, sont eperdument epris l'un de l'autre. Helas, le roi de France s'oppose a leur union. Hors des liens du mariage, la princesse se donne a son amant et tombe enceinte : son fils sera Roland, le legendaire paladin, futur heros de la bataille de Roncevaux. Fuyant la colere de Charlemagne, mais proteges par de mysterieuses demoiselles drapees de lumiere, les amants cherchent refuge en Italie et s'installent pres de la ville de Sutre. C'est la que l'enfant, surnomme Rolandin, vivra ses premieres annees comme un simple fils de bucheron, partageant ses journees entre l'ecole du docte maitre Pierre et la foret sauvage. Bien des epreuves attendent le jeune garcon, mais Rolandin n'a peur de rien, et ce ne sont pas quelques garnements, un cochon glouton, un clerc erudit, un seigneur mesquin ou un ogre affame qui sauront l'impressionner ! Il se jettera tete baissee dans toutes les aventures, en esperant quand meme etre rentre chez ses parents a temps pour le souper.
