The Great Stromboli pulls his strings, closed up inside a world of wood and cardboard. He stages the great dramas and the ironic quality of existence with his marvelous puppets, which seem to have a life of their own. Stromboli knows how to read right down to the bottom of a person, how to steal the persons secret pains and soothe them. He offers individuals a role as a protagonist in his show, he cures all loneliness and donates his precious strings.
