In the marvelous drawings of Roberto Innocenti’s Pinocchio (1989) there is Grand Ducal Tuscany, poor, modest, sober, beautiful. There are the lanes that end in nothing, the dry stone walls, the climbs and descents of villages perched on the Apennines, the cobblestones, the red bricks and gray stones of the houses, the cold of the rain at night and the wind ‘strapazzone’.
Pinocchio the puppet, in those plates, is the detail of a fresco that resumes his nature of a great “whole”, a point in the snowy landscape (a dirty snow that is melting!) where he meets Cat and Fox, a comma suspended in flight in the landscape that unravels over the Arno valley until it reaches the rocks of Calafuria.
The Tuscan geography of Roberto Innocenti’s Pinocchio is so perceptible that we can hear its sounds and smells. Path after path, brick after brick, stone after stone.
