Where is Pinocchio?

Where is Pinocchio?

PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST

The LdM Event Planning Class, with the support of the Cultural Association Pinocchio, is organizing a photography contest inspired by Pinocchio, one of the most famous fairy tale characters and a real ambassador of the Made in Italy. “The Adventures of Pinocchio” is one of the most translated books in the world. Take the chance to (re)read the official English version available on this website.

Through the contest, you can learn more about Pinocchio and its author Carlo Lorenzini, known also as Carlo Collodi (Florence, 1826-1890). An off-the-beaten-track itinerary would lead you to some historical places still preserving traces of Lorenzini and his creature. A personalized map will show you the way https://goo.gl/dSrjdX. Find a brief description of each place in the list of the places, available for download.
