Pinocchio: opera educativa? - Indagine attraverso l'analisi delle allusioni bibliche del testo


  • Nanna Bergquist

Summary, in English

This paper is an intertextual study of the biblical allusions in Carlo Collodis 19th century childrens book "Pinocchio", where the issue is to find out whether the biblical allusions are being used in an educative purpose or not. I.e. if the allusions increase the young audiences' appal for the immoral protagonist Pinocchio, or if they rather heighten his heroical air.
