Who is L’isola di Pinocchio
Isola di Pinocchio is the magic world of Marionettes in Venice created by the Venetian craftsman Roberto Comin. Here you will find typical characters of Commedia dell’Arte as well as representations of characters belonging both to history and fantastic literature.
We will meet Roberto Comin, the mastermind behind Isola di Pinocchio, a magical world of puppets and marionettes in Venice. His work unites elegance and tradition as he makes the marionettes from beech, birch, charm or elder then paints and varnishes them by hand. He creates traditional characters such as Harlequin, Venetian characters like the Marchioness and literary heroes like Pinocchio. All his creations in wood, tissues and papier-mâché, are real works of art.
