Parco di Pinocchio
The author of Pinocchio Carlo Lorenzini (1826-90), who wrote under the nom de plume of Carlo Collodi, was from Florence. His mother was born here, and most of his formative years were spent here. Florence is therefore the site of the most famous theme park in Tuscany, which is inspired by the story of Pinocchio and in which scenes from the story have been re-created. It is a veritable paradise, but not just for children! Pinocchio's Park contains a variety of irresistible games and attractions for everyone. A monument to Pinocchio and the fairy by Emilio Greco was erected in the 1950s. At the same time, Venturini was involved in the construction of the beautiful little piazza of mosaics, through which one enters Toyland. This is an area where all the adventures of the wooden puppet have been depicted in sculpture, scenery and statues, made from various materials and interpreted by several different artists.
