Three productions based on Rousseau’s Pygmalion were documented in Sicily around the end of the eighteenth century in the city of Palermo (1776, 1797) and Catania (1791) by different sources. The aim of this essay is to study them in more detail to contribute, albeit marginally, to the knowledge of theatre and cultural activities in eighteenth-century Sicily and of the diffusion of the melodrama, invented for theatre by Rousseau.
