Carlo Collodi, Manuela Adreani
Carlo Collodi's masterpiece 'Pinocchio' is the most widely read fairytale, beloved by children around the world. The adventures of the disobedient puppet with a heart of gold who dreams of becoming a real boy has entered into the collective imagination, as have many other characters born from the pen and genius of the Tuscan author: the Talking Cricket, the Cat, the Fox, the Blue Fairy, and the dreaded Mangiafuoco. The imaginative and ingenious narrative inventions have inspired films and short features, songs and musicals, and personalities of the calibre of Salvador Dali. This volume, proposing an adaptation of the original text, is enriched with the splendid illustrations of Manuela Adreani, an artist of rare sensitivity, capable of capturing and elegantly transmitting all the magic and poetry of a story that has become a timeless classic.
