Pinocchio goes to Africa after visiting a circus in which all the animals are costumed Africans, and manages to get himself named emperor.
Translated from the Italian of Cherubini by Angelo Patri.
Pinocchio is a fictional character and the protagonist of the children’s novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883) by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. Pinocchio was carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a Tuscan village. He was created as a wooden puppet but he dreams of becoming a real boy. He is notably characterized for his frequent tendency to lie, which causes his nose to grow.
Pinocchio is a cultural icon. He is one of the most reimagined characters in children’s literature. His story has been adapted into other media, notably the 1940 Disney film Pinocchio.
