Monumental Museum

Monumental Park

Pinocchio Park was built as a pathway of surprises. It began with two works that condensed the meaning of Pinocchio’s story: “Pinocchio and the Fairy”, the monument by Emilio Greco, and the Piazzetta dei Mosaici by Venturino Venturi.      
It proceeds in stages, with sculptures, buildings, and landscaping where adults and children work together to find Pinocchio’s adventures through works by great artists of the 20th century, ranging from Pietro Consagra’s sculptures to Zanuso’s Large Dogfish.

We bet you don’t remember many of the characters or episodes! If that’s the case, then why not re-read The Adventures of Pinocchio once you get home?
