For the second appointment in the season, following the staging, at Christmas, of Dalla terra alla luna, the Carlo Colla & Figli Company is presenting a new show: Pinocchio, based on The adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, a masterpiece of children’s literature, a novel about growing up as well as a fantastic tale.
The version “for puppets”, the result of an idea by Eugenio Monti Colla, has a brand-new script and originally-composed music, as well as puppets, sets, costumes and equipment created by the Company’s own internal artisan workshops.
“The Carlo Colla & Figli Company’s puppets - a director’s note reads - which have already featured in the television adaptation directed by Luigi Comencini, are now performing The adventures of Pinocchio, with due respect to the novel but also with a certain critical aspect, the ability to create illusions and a world of enchantment which will once again astound audiences of all ages”.
