Buona sera, tutti!
I just wanted to let all of you know about a great new production of the Pinocchio story (live actors, not animation). It starts from the story of the author (somewhat like "Finding Neverland"). This came out as a miniseries on RAI TV in November and I tried to watch it then via the website, but the standard recordings are limited for viewing only within Italy. I just found a "back door" (high definition!) version of the video that is available in the US. For some reason, there is no one-click web address to get you there. Here's how to browse to it:
1) Go to www.rai.tv
2) Click on the tab in the upper right corner of the screen: ALTA QUALIT? (HIGH DEF)
3) Choose the first episode: Pinocchio - Prima puntata
Here is the RAI website that includes the plot, cast, interviews, photos, games, backstage and other links:http://www.pinocchio.rai.it/category/0,1067207,1067221-1084693,00.html
