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.
The Monumental Park
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?
The Monumental Tour
The Monumental Park is a journey in stages with buildings, sculptures, and works by great artists from the 20th century

The Cat and the Fox
Another exemplary work by Petro Cosagra depicts the two greedy villains who dupe Pinocchio.
Pinocchio and the Fairy
Emilio Greco’s “Pinocchio and the Fairy” is at the entrance to the park.
The Piazzetta dei Mosaici
Emilio Greco’s "Pinocchio and the Fairy" is at the park’s entrance. The mosaics in the Piazzetta dei Mosaici are by the artist Venturino Venturi.
With arched legs, this imposing sculpture calls up the episode in which Pinocchio slips between the carabiniere’s legs to escape from him, just like most of our young visitors do.
