Since it was first published in 1883, Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio has captivated and influenced generations of young people with its moral tale about a little wooden puppet who is naughty, mischievous and daring, and faces many challenges along the road towards becoming human.
Pinocchio is fashioned in the workshop of the craftsman Gepetto. He sets out on a journey and has many great adventures.
There is a strong tradition of artists giving Collodi’s heartwarming story, with its universal themes and colourful characters, new life. It was a huge success in 1883 and this bold interpretation by Ivan Cavallari and Edoardo Sanchi will captivate a new generation of youngsters – and the not so young!
