Carpenter Geppetto builds a puppet and names him Pinocchio. Upon his numerous adventures, the marionette runs into quite a bit of trouble, but fortunately, a Fairy with Turquoise Hair helps him extricate from his many mischiefs. The Fairy comes along with a Crow, an Owl and a Talking Cricket. Pinocchio later finds himself on the Island of Toys and is transformed into a donkey. After a brave escape, he ends up in the belly of a shark where he saves Geppetto, who had also been swallowed by the shark while searching for Pinocchio at sea.
"As soon as he got home, Geppetto gathered his tools together and started moulding and creating his puppet. "What name will I give him," he asked himself. I'll call him Pinocchio. The name will bring him luck.... When he had found his puppet's name, he started working in earnest, giving him hair, forehead and eyes..."
"It was the most difficult, absorbing, experimental and tricky film I have ever made. Over three hundred artists shared my joy and pain for over four years, in an extraordinary atmosphere of collaboration. You can see all of this in every scene from Pinocchio, our very own darling in search of happiness." (Enzo D'Alò)
