All this and much more will be the new Museum of Pinocchio.
The project sponsored by the Carlo Collodi National Foundation held in the Pinocchio Park, is one of the many initiative (often of International scope) done with the purpose of promoting the works of Carlo Lorenzini, especially Pinocchio.
The museum is divided in two areas: exposition and interaction.
Nella prima trovano spazio i libri (circa 8mila volumi) e la collezione di opere d'arte che laFondazione Collodi è riuscita a raccogliere negli anni: pitture, sculture, incisioni e disegni tutti dedicati alla figura di Pinocchio e alla fiaba. Sempre in questa zona sono allestite inoltre mostre temporanee grazie ai prestiti di collezionisti, mentre all'esterno trovano spazio le mostre di scultura e opere di grandi dimensioni.
The interactive part is instead achieved by the installation of eight multimedia workstations from which you can access the digital library of Pinocchio, which contains hundreds of illustrated books.
Through Multi-touch stations user can browse, search and read the digital versions of the treasures of the Fondazione Nazionale Carlo Collodi.
Select and view ancient drawings in detail, look for foreign editions of publications in Asia, South America, Russia, Australia and many more.
In addiction two areas are joined by a third where they manage art workshops for adults and those of creativity and reading a children's playroom.
The Museum is therefore a place open to everybody: from childrens to expert art collectors of toys with the aim to affirm and consolidate the image of Pinocchio, the hero of kids around the world.
