About this show

As the American culture grew up with heroes such as Spider-Man and Batman, italytime chose to tell the story of Pinocchio to introduce an Italian hero that showcased the Italian culture and fairy tales we grew up with. The play is based on three chapters of the original story written by Carlo Collodi (Lorenzini) and published in 1880.

The author Dacia Maraini, one of the most popular Italian living novelists, asked a college professor and a journalist to offer their takes on two episodes, "The Fox and the Cat" and "Pinocchio in Playland," while she wrote the main one, "Pinocchio rescued by The Fairy."
