Pinocchio Day

by 

Today is a great day for Pinocchio. 11 October, the Italian release date of Roberto Benigni’s eagerly awaited latest film, has been officially declared Pinocchio Day. From the Appenines to the Andes, from Prato to New York, Italy’s little “pinocchietto” will be celebrated with a huge variety of events.
The textile museum of Prato will receive the original costume that Benigni wore in the film, Pisa’s Leopolda Station will host a 1.4-meter high chocolate effigy of the wooden puppet and New York’s Italian Culture Institute is inaugurating an exhibition entitled “Pinocchio around the world”, organised by the Collodi Foundation. Back in Tuscany, or more precisely in Morlupo Fiorentino, 31 illustrated panels inspired by Pinocchio’s adventures and made by potter, Eugenio Taccini will be exhibited and will subsequently be taken to Luxembourg.
The final stop of this whirlwind world tour “of art and animation” will be Misericordia, the little town where the Tuscan actor was born, and where an exhibition dedicated to historical editions of Collodi’s classic has been organised.
