Pinocchio by Enrico Mazzanti - the first illustrator (1883) of Le avventure di Pinocchio. Story of a Puppet - colored by Daniel DONNA
When we were in Italy, I discovered that Carlo Collodi wrote the Adventures of Pinocchio in Florence. There was a wonderful little shop in Florence devoted to Pinocchio where there were little wooden Pinocchios for sale. These are very well made and have moveable heads, arms and legs. One of the few souvenirs I brought home was one of the little Pinocchios.

Outside the shop was a boy size Pinocchio where one could sit and have their picture made with the little guy.

And I did.

I was visiting my friend Virginia in Greensboro this past week, and I noticed in her kitchen she had a Pinocchio funnel. Cute!
