Once upon a time... — A king! — my little readers will immediately say. No, kids, you are wrong. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. Everyone probably knows that this is the beginning of The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Lorenzini (Florence, 1826 — 1890), better known under the pseudonym of Carlo Collodi. The adventures of the wooden puppet, eventually transformed into a child of flesh and bones thanks to the blue fairy, are in fact retraced through stages with bronze and steel sculptures made by great artists of the Twentieth century. Surrounded by vegetation, these works bring back to mind the most salient episodes of the story and, if some episode escapes memory, an innovative QR code system gives you the opportunity to listen to the pieces of the original text corresponding to each statue, read by the voices of Pinocchio and the characters he gradually encounters in his life path. The Park mostly attracts families with children and every year is a destination for educational trips, but among the more than seven million visitors from all over the world who have crossed it many are passionate about contemporary art and twentieth century architecture and landscape, since the sculptural works that compose it are of significant interest in the contemporary art scene. In fact, it could be called a true open-air museum, because the sculptures trace a fantastic path between flowers and vegetation, inviting visitors to continue on their journey through the famous story of the wooden puppet and to meet all the various characters with whom Pinocchio found himself to dialogue.
