For many years Lorenzo Mattotti has been confronting, in a process of continuous reworking, one of the best-known figures of universal literature: Pinocchio. The story of the piece of wood that comes to life and its epic to become a real child seem to find an ideal sounding board in the illustrator’s work. The result of this exceptional encounter is an artist’s book, which can fully restore to us not only the simultaneously ambiguous and phantasmagorical spirit and profound intent of Collodi, but also the inventiveness and vision of Mattotti-or of Collodi as seen by Mattotti.
