Alex Pinna has made Pinocchio go from a boy whose nose grows long to a boy whose legs grow long… very long! The 50-foot ‘Big Pinocchio’ statue has now found a permanent home in Tortoli, Italy (not a bad place to call home).

The ‘Big Pinocchio’ statue is made out of iron and is of the classic animated character lying on his side. The statue was added to the town when they began showing a retrospective of Alex Pinna's work. Definitely interesting to see such a small animated character at 50-feet tall!
