A Special Geppetto
"I thought of making myself a beautiful wooden puppet. It must be marvellous, one that will be able to dance, fence, and turn somersaults in the air. And with this puppet I intend to go around the world, to earn a crust of bread and a glass of wine" [...] "Geppetto seriously set about working in earnest and began with his hair, then his forehead, then his eyes. And having finished making his eyes just imagine his bewilderment when he noticed that these eyes were moving and were staring fixedly at him."
Pinocchio is really a special puppet. In fact, he is apiece of artwork. So, every artist is as though he were a Geppetto. But a special Geppetto, who interprets the human figure and discovers the life that is in the material. Just as Marino Marini did./p>
