di Pinocchio a Collodi (Pistoia)
We are 30 minutes by car from Collodi - the town of Pinocchio.
Collodi is famous throughout the world for having given its
name to the writer Carlo Lorenzini, who assumed for his greatest
creation the name of the village that was his mother's birthplace
: for "Collodi" was none other than the pseudonym taken by
the author of "The Adventures of Pinocchio", the book with
the greatest number of copies in print second only to the
Bible and the Koran.
The village of Collodi has since then developed into a recognized
tourist destination and boasts three distinct attractions,
which however share the characteristic of blending harmoniously
with the Tuscan landscape, and inspiring visitors' imagination
to soar into wondrous realms of never-ending story and fable.
