La Villa came alive over the weekend with people gathering to have fun at the Pinocchio festival. Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio’s creator took his name from Collodi, the birthplace of his mother. The village is not far from Bagni di Lucca and the character is very popular in the area.

Morena sent me some photos of the celebrations.

Morena and Mariangela did a great job with the children, helping them with their beautiful paintings.

I was lucky to be in the village last year for the celebrations. Click here to see the fun.

Thank you Morena for sharing the weekend with us.
