Pinocchio. Carlo Collodi, eigentlich Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890) war ein italienischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Meister Seppel, der Marionettenschnitzer, kommt aus dem Staunen nicht mehr heraus: die Puppe, die er gerade geschnitzt hat, ist lebendig! Er tauft sie Pinocchio und schnell zeigt sich: Pinocchio ist eigensinnig und rücksichtslos. Um ihm ein Schulbuch besorgen zu können, verkauft Meister Seppel seine einzige Jacke. Auf dem Weg zur Schule fühlt sich Pinocchio aber magisch von einem Puppentheater angezogen. Das ist der Anfang eines bewegten Abenteuers, in dem sich Pinocchio durch seinen Eigensinn immer wieder in große Probleme bringt. Trotzdem erfüllt sich am Ende Pinocchios großer Wunsch - ein richtiger Junge aus Fleisch und Blut zu werden.

Italian Children S Literature And National Identity. This book bridges the fields of Children’s Literature and Italian Studies by examining how turn-of-the-century children’s books forged a unified national identity for the new Italian State. Through contextualized close readings of a wide range of texts, Truglio shows how the 19th-century concept of recapitulation, which held that ontogeny (the individual’s development) repeats phylogeny (the evolution of the species), underlies the strategies of this corpus. Italian fairy tales, novels, poems, and short stories imply that the personal development of the child corresponds to and hence naturalizes the modernizing development of the nation. In the context of Italy’s uneven and ambivalent modernization, these narrative trajectories are enabled by a developmental melancholia. Using a psychoanalytic lens, and in dialogue with recent Anglophone Children’s Literature criticism, this study proposes that national identity was constructed via a process of renouncing and incorporating paternal and maternal figures, rendered as compulsory steps into maturity and modernity. With chapters on the heroic figure of Garibaldi, the Orientalized depiction of the South, and the role of girls in formation narratives, this book discloses how melancholic itineraries produced gendered national subjects. This study engages both well-known Italian texts, such as Collodi’s The Adventures of Pinocchio and De Amicis’ Heart, and books that have fallen into obscurity by authors such as Baccini, Treves, Gianelli, and Nuccio. Its approach and corpus shed light on questions being examined by Italianists, Children’s Literature scholars, and social and cultural historians with an interest in national identity formation.
