NERO PINOCCHIO A TRANSCENDENCE OF CHILDHOOD

13

NERO PINOCCHIO

The blunt and sharp vision of the novel by Collodi supports the polymorphic structure that has always

provided the key to multiple interpretations. In a deliberately patchy fashion, almost in parceled-out

allotments, the goal is to show the reader the gloomiest nature of the story and its underlying Gothic

vision; these are aspects that in the collective fictitious world, thanks to sugarcoated readings such

as Disney’s, tend to get lost. What may seem like a literary nuance is the undeniable reality of our

everyday world: Pinocchio conned, chained, exploited, stabbed, hung, arrested, and unjustly imprisoned,

embodies a similar situation to that of the migrants arriving in the „beautiful land of toys.“

Our fairy tale, as well as the stories of abuse and violence that too often go along with the amalga-

mation of migrants from every land and every era, are the key to the reading of this section of “Black

Pinocchio.”
