exhibition > A Real Boy: The Many Lives of Pinocchio

This new original exhibition produced by the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles explores the cultural origins, interpretations, and enduring appeal of one of the most popular characters in children’s literature. Written in 1883 by Italian author Carlo Collodi, The Adventures of Pinocchio has delighted generations. The book has been translated into over 260 languages—a number exceeded only by the Bible.

Among the exhibited items is a first edition Italian-language version of Le avventure di Pinocchio, one of only six copies of the book that remain in the world. Artwork from Walt Disney’s animated feature film, vintage toys, costumes by Oscar-nominated designer Massimo Cantini Parrini, Pinocchio ephemera, and publications of the book in languages ranging from Polish to Vietnamese are also showcased. The exhibition, designed to engage visitors of all ages, is a journey into the many incarnations of a beloved character who has left an indisputable mark on our collective imagination.
