Was Pinocchio actually right?
A Snack with TPL - "Was Pinocchio actually right?" Francesco Schianchi and Luca Fois, author and curator of the Kids Design Manifesto, introduced by Daniela Pavone, co-founder of The Payful Living
Pinocchio, marionette-child, good-bad, naive-smart, a metaphor for life, a metaphor for all of us. A rich and multifaceted character, too often wrongfully portrayed trivially and in a stereotypical way. Is the nose really getting longer because of the lies? Nah! It grows because of emotions, just like us who turn red with shame. An interesting case of storytelling, as one would now say, analyzed from the point of view of Design for Kids, by those who have been dealing for years with the most strategic of the many "designs", the one for kids, our future citizens. From the first international Manifesto, to the Master of Polidesign on Design for Kids, through a series of stories about Pinocchio, in order to first reflect and then design objects and services for kids endowed with rights and personalities, as the core of research.
