Pinocchio Park

Discovering the world’s most famous puppet

Collodi
Nestled in a splendid Mediterranean forestry area,  Pinocchio’s Monumental Park was designed by Baldi, De Luigi and Porcinai. It is located in the hometown of Carlo Lorenzini, the author of ‘Pinocchio’. As the most widely-read and most often translated non-religious book in the world, it has been cited in works by Greco, Venturi, Consagra, Michelucci and Zanuso. In ‘Pinocchio’s Park’, ‘Toyland’ and the ‘Workshop of Words and Figures’, visitors can enjoy year-round exhibitions spotlighting art and illustrations. Children and adults will delight in myriad educational exhibitions, puppet show and hands-on creative workshops.
