The ancient, modern and contemporary production of Theatre put Italy as one of the more important country about this Art. We can find traces of Italian Theatre everywhere due to the influence of The Commedia dell ‘Arte in all modern and contemporary world productions.

Pinocchio is part of this tradition with its “full-body-mask” inserts in a meta-writing literature structure. The Adventures of Pinocchio will be filtered by the 6 Characters of Pirandello, characters looking for their time to play.
Even Pirandello with is negative relativism looked at the Commedia as the way to fix his dreaming symbolism and his vast meta-theatre experimentation.
