In addition, Straffy will be awarded the Kineo / Ittv Award in recognition of his visionary ability to identify creative projects capable of capturing the attention of a global and diverse market using cartoons-entertainment to advance social messages. ” Basic “

Strafi’s new creation is a fun and original adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s famous Pinocchio, one of the most beloved fairy tales of all time. Colloid’s DNA remains with his classic characters – from hero to gepetto, from talking cricket to cat and from fox to blue fairy – offering them, however, with the addition of a contemporary key and wild frida, inseparable and daring Pinocchio’s friend, to the real pirate-like board. Always ready.

The whole essence of the fairy tale remains, a universal story full of values ​​like friendship, sharing, inclusion and which in this new edition speaks to children in an innovative and thoughtless style, encouraging them to follow their dreams with the whole story. The children of Twist and Turn will thus be able to share Pinocchio’s curiosity and love for adventure, entering a world where technology seems to have taken over, but direct experience makes a great discovery every day. With Frida and Gimini Cricket, the protagonist forms a trio that is always ready for action: no place is too far away for them, no challenge is too difficult. Together they will visit incredible places like the Magic Forest and the sea, meet friends and foes, but always manage to get out of the situation.

And the story created by Collody thus remains a timeless daydream, even if Pinocchio now roams the streets in his skate, the cat and fox fleeing in a pink convertible ship, and Frida knows everything about smartphones and technology.

In the new cartoon, indeed, there is the modern world, but it is still from the magic – especially from Gepetto’s wonderful workshop – that it all begins.

“Pinocchio is one of the most beloved characters in Italian fantasy literature – says Strafy – and to give him a new lease of life I have waited for the right moment to take care of the details and the quality. We are now happy to reveal our contemporary Pinocchio to the world The center addresses in a light and educational cartoon.Families will love to watch this thrilling series on TV and the little ones will find their new hero in their character.
