Carlo Collodi

  • 4 stars across 53 books
    Carlo Corenzini was both in Florence, Italy, in 1826 and worked as a writer and journalist under the pseudonym Carlo Collodi. In addition to being celebrated for his writing he was also known for his active interest in political life and ideas. He first began to engage with a young audience of readers when he published a translation of the French Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault in 1876, and then began work on his most celebrated book, Pinocchio, in 1881. His story of a puppet began life as a series of instalments published in The Children's Magazine before being published as a complete book - with a new ending - in 1883. Corenzini died some seven years later, in 1890, in his home city of Florence.
