Pinocchio: The Real Story

Summary

The Adventures of Pinocchio, by the 19th-century Italian writer Carlo Collodi, was a dark and brutal tale that and originally ended with the marionette's execution, but it was also a way of educating the children of a newly unified Italy. Contributors join Bridget Kendall to examine why Collodi's original - which is one of the most translated books in the world and one of the most adapted - has been largely ignored in favour of lighter variants
