    Discover the undisputed masterpiece of Italian children's literature from Carlo Collodi, staged in Villers-la-Ville from 15/07 to 09/08/14!


    Very few know, but the adventure of Pinocchio started in 1881 in an Italian children's magazine. The magazine was discontinued in 1883 with no less than 36 chapters to its name.

    The Villers ruins and Del Production are therefore venturing into a domain of fantasy and enchanting imagery, that will create a light-hearted, cheerful show...for the most enjoyment.

    One not to miss!

    The history

    Who doesn't know it?

    Geppeto, the old woodcarver decides one day to sculpt a puppet that could earn him a living, by taking him to fairs.


    He starts dreaming that this puppet could become a real boy, the son that he never had...And one night, a fairy grants his wish.


    But the fairy warns Pinocchio that he must pay the price for "freedom," each time that he is disobedient or misbehaves, he will turn back into a puppet.

    Pinocchio must quickly embark on extraordinary adventures that will be followed by hazardous encounters and pitiful shame.

    A magical and marvellous tale, that doesn't however evade difficulties, between lies and disappointment, from the initial creation of a puppet, that becomes a real boy.

    A magical, classic and cheeky show, that will enchant the little ones and the big ones!

    A Del Diffusion production.
