Festival dei Bambini_Pinocchio Vision

In Florence, April 4 to 6, was held the event "PINOCCHIO VISION" in the "Children's Festival. New Worlds", organized by the Cultural Association Pinocchio by Carlo Lorenzini.
Children and adults have participated in the activities, in the district of San Lorenzo where the author Carlo Lorenzini, also known by the pseudonym of Collodi, was born and lived in the section " DISCOVER " to be the proper protagonists of the discovery of the great and unique cultural heritage of Florence and of our nation.
The Hon Monica Baldi , President of the Association , said: "It is extraordinary to be able to participate in the first Children's Festival in Florence involving public institutions and associations , children and adults , to help enhance our unique heritage."
Every day was active FLASH ART WORKSHOP with Master of Pinocchio Forum / EU, Caterina Balletti .
Flash art is a method of painting that represents "the new of new". It’s a way of expressing that, in addition to being innovative and emotional impact, it is engaging and disturbing at the same time. Creativity, spontaneity and imagination manifest in a performance of emotions conveyed through pictorial action that takes place in talking about freedom and painting with ease at the same time. The technique is no more with the classic brushstrokes , but takes place with the use of rollers, trowels and brushes, for which, thanks to the pressure of the roller and the fusion of multiple colors, you can get spectacular shades and special effects using the spatula. All this is done with extraordinary immediacy that allows you to get a picture in a few seconds. This is the magic of flash art "Synthesis and Immediacy ."
In the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday both adults and children played at GIRAPINOCCHIO with Luca Giannelli . The tale of Pinpocchio has been reworked by Luca Giannelli and Angelica Cortini in Girapinocchio of Scramasax. The game is a cross between "Trivial" and "Snakes and Ladders", which, through 300 applications , allows you to retrace the fairy tale, the life of the father of Pinocchio and the history of Florence at the time of Lorenzini (1826 - 1890). The Girapinocchio was released in 2012 on the occasion of the exhibition of Pinocchio at the National Library of Florence.
Thanks to: "Istituto Lorenzo de Medici" and "Children's Festival. New Worlds”.
