Despite being one of the best-known works in the world, Pinocchio is little known in its unabridged version. Its popularity is the result of successful adaptations, which have helped to make the Tuscan puppet one of the world's most famous literary characters.
To fill this gap, here is PINOCCHIOIN8PUNTATE: eight readings, realised by professional actors and actresses and special readers, with the aim of presenting Collodi's novel in its entirety, according to the rhythmic progression with which his publishing adventure began.

The initiative stems from the three-year Officina Teatro / Letteratura project, formalised by a memorandum of understanding that four Tuscan theatre companies (Accademia Mutamenti, Arca Azzurra, Compagnia Lombardi-Tiezzi, i Sacchi di Sabbia) have stipulated with the Scuola Normale Superiore, with the aim of enhancing and promoting the dissemination of great literary works.
