Pinocchio by Enzo D'Alò

Pinocchio by Enzo D'Alò
Since year 2000, as soon as I completed the fourth draft of the script, I've been slogging to find which could be the best and most original way to re-recount the story of Pinocchio. Abandoned. Resumed. Abandoned then resumed then abandoned. (...) Then my father passed away, on a November night of year 2003. I tried to look in-depth into a dialogue that had so often been superficial. I needed to understand and justify my behaviour as a "non obedient" child. But I also needed to understand what had created his expectations in my regards, that so often I unattended (...) So I read Collodi's novel under this new light. While Geppetto carves Pinocchio, he sees himself in his own face. He imagines what Pinocchio sees when he looks at him. He realizes he's becoming a father to himself. In the child-puppet he sees his past and his lost expectations, as well. He becomes emotional and nostalgic for the choices he never made. Perhaps Geppetto carves Pinocchio hoping to never end the carving? His objective is the path, his interior fantasy that creates the creation process: it's his point of view of a lost child to imagine to entire story. Regret, memory, future and expectations become Pinocchio. (Enzo D'Alò)
