° PINOCCHIO CLOCKS: Time markers inspired by the novel "The Pinocchio's Adventures", the most translated book in the world after religious texts.
We have created two types: °" Abc ": Very nice full-length Pinocchio model, with swinging legs under the mechanism... it makes you happy to look at it! °" Novella ": Model with the first page of the Pinocchio original book "Once upon a time ... A King! My little readers will say immediately ..." The appearance is exactly that of an old open book, and the sinuous course of the writing lines simulates the thickness of the book.
The "Novella" model is available in the following versions:
° for table with Pinocchio in relief sitting in front of the pages holding abecedary in hand; ° for hanging with the puppet that makes the swing hanging with the legs in the air.
° ART COMEDY THEATRE: These two models are inspired by the characters of Commedia dell'Arte, both featuring Colombina, the oldest Art Comedy mask.
Colombina is a beautiful, sly and mischievous housekeeper (family collaborator), who takes advantage of her talents while having fun making crazy Pantalone, the owner.
The two models with Colombina, both for wall, are: ° Colombina dances the belly dance by swinging her large skirt. Absolutely exceptional gift for a dancer and dance lovers, nice and funny; ° Colombina who shows off her magician's skills with Pantalone who tries to find a foothold in his heart. Sweet for a newly married couple and for theater lovers.

° " The Divine Comedy " table clock with the image of an open book and the first verses of the famous work of Dante Alighieri "In the middle of the journey of our life ...". The clock is made more precious by the decorative element of the Giglio di FIrenze in aged wood. For lovers of Florence and ancient literature.
