PINOCCHIO, the animated feature film directed by Enzo D’Alò and produced by Nicolas Steil will open the Venice Days at the Venice Festival on the 30th of August 2012!

Venice Days had promised a surprise that would make a unique impression at this year´s event, and they have delivered. The opening film will be Pinocchio directed by Enzo d´Alò, scripted by Umberto Marino with particular attention to being as faithful to Carlo Collodi´s original text as possible, illustrations led by Lorenzo Mattotti and set to music by Lucio Dalla. The opening will take place on August 30 in the Sala Darsena, straight after The Women´s Tales, a homage to feminine creativity in collaboration with Miu Miu.
“To open with an animated film, with a work of Italian craftsmanship which has no better representative symbol than Collodi´s novel, seemed like the most beautiful way to pay homage to an extraordinary group of artists and to give the colours of fantasy to a programme we wanted to be young, courageous, entertaining and iridescent,” explains Giorgio Gosetti, Venice Days director.
“A red and yellow comma crosses the cloud of a storm, an animated thunderbolt in the reign of the terrestrials! It bumps into things, crashes, touches you and escapes! Let him run, it´s…. Pinocchio!”
Enzo d´Alò talks of his work expressively. “It was the most difficult, absorbing, experimental and tricky film I have ever made. Over three hundred artists shared my joy and pain for over four years, in an extraordinary atmosphere of collaboration. You can see all of this in every scene from Pinocchio, our very own darling in search of happiness.”
Produced by CometafilmIris ProductionsWalking the Dog and 2D-3D Animation, working between Italy, France, Belgium and Luxemburg, distributed in Italy by Lucky Redand across the globe by Rezo Films, Enzo d´Alò´s Pinocchio represents the crowning of a five-year long dream of artistic and production endeavours.
The film director of La gabbianella e il gatto´s meeting with Lorenzo Mattotti, the great illustrator who drew the Cannes film festival logo in 2000, produced the miracle adaptation of the novel, as faithful as it is innovative and original. Lucio Dalla´s music (his last work), the voices of Gabriele Caprio (the young actor who has given Pinocchio his voice),Rocco Papaleo (Mangiafoco), Paolo Ruffini (Lucignolo), Maurizio Micheli (the cat),Pino Quartullo (the policeman) and Dalla (the green fisherman), help create an intricate scene of never seen, yet highly recognisable, Italy, making this unforgettable fable a great cinematographic event for viewers of all ages.
“Enzo d´Alò returns to the big screen with every element of Italian excellence,” declaresAndrea Occhipinti who will distribute Pinocchio in Italy through Lucky Red. “A universal fable loved around the world, a director considered at the European level to be a brilliant and original talent, Mattotti´s drawings which show the Tuscan landscape and countryside in a way never seen before in an animated film, and the last film of one of the greatest singer-songwriters, Lucio Dalla. When I saw it, I felt extremely emotional. I am sure that audiences of all ages will be bowled over. It is a true joy to me that the film will be opening Venice Days.”
“As soon as he got home, Geppetto gathered his tools together and started moulding and creating his puppet. “What name will I give him,” he asked himself. “I´ll call him Pinocchio. The name will bring him luck….” When he had found his puppet´s name, he started working in earnest, giving him hair, forehead and eyes…” These words are taken from Carlo Lorenzini´s first few pages, in Collodi style.
If Enzo d´Alò´s Pinocchio will be the film to inaugurate Venice Days, Crawl by Hervé Lasgouttes is the French work of art which will be the film to close the official selection, while it is Paolo Rumiz´s Il risveglio del fiume segreto, directed by Alessandro Scillitani, which will conclude Venice Nights on September 8, under the stars of the Casa degli Autori.
