Three Eyes on Pinocchio italytime presents a new play by Dacia Maraini, Silvia Calamai and Paolo Tartamella
New York, NY: Italytime Cultural Center is coming out with its first play of the season 2018, "Three Eyes on Pinocchio", directed by Vittorio Capotorto and to be performed at Our Lady of Pompeii Theater, 25/B Carmine Street, New York, NY 10014. As the American culture grew up with heroes such as Spiderman and Batman, italytime chose to tell the story of Pinocchio to introduce an Italian hero that showcased the Italian culture and fairytales we grew up with. The play is based on three chapters of the original story written by Carlo Collodi (Lorenzini) and published in 1880. The author Dacia Maraini, one of the most popular Italian living novelists, asked a college professor and a journalist to offer their takes on two episodes, The Fox and the Cat and Pinocchio in Playland, while she wrote the main one, Pinocchio rescued by The Fairy.
