In Giacchi’s own words, the symposium is presented as follows: “Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. And once upon a time there was Carmelo Bini, the first and at the same time the last actor who took Pinocchio seriously even before the story. After all, the piece of wood is That organic matter that tends toward the inorganic, like Carmelo Bini’s body. Like his stage. Like an actor.”
