  7. Oscars: Garrone’s ‘Pinocchio’ up for costumes

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 15 – Italian director Matteo Garrone’s ‘Pinocchio’ was nominated for an Oscar for costumes on Monday.
    Pinocchio is a 2019 Italian fantasy film, co-written, directed
and co-produced by Garrone, and based on the 1883 classic book
The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.
    The film stars child actor Federico Ielapi as the title
character, Roberto Benigni as Geppetto, the late Gigi Proietti
as Mangiafuoco, Rocco Papaleo[6] and Massimo Ceccherini as The
Cat and the Fox, and Marine Vacth as the adult Fairy with
Turquoise Hair.
    This was great comedian and comic actor Proietti’s final
appearance before his death in November 2020, though he made a
posthumous appearance in the film ‘Io sono Babbo Natale’ (I’m
Father Christmas).
    Pinocchio was a passion project for Garrone, who drew the first
storyboard of the story at the age of six.
    It is the second live-action Pinocchio film to star comic great
and Life Is Beautiful Oscar winner Benigni, following the 2002
adaptation, and the second to star Papaleo, after the 2012
animated film. (ANSA).
