This small, unnamed Italian village acts as the main setting of the 1940 Disney animated feature film, Pinocchio.

Background[]

This village is a seaside community located in Italy, and is described by Jiminy Cricket as a "sleepy little town". Though seemingly ordinary and quaint, a number of fantastical occurrences have taken place here, with anthropomorphic animals, magical creatures, and legendary beasts being among its inhabitants and visitors.

It is located adjacent to Pleasure Island, a notoriously accursed island. In the village, there is a law forbidding citizens from visiting the island's shores.

Places of interest[]

  • Geppetto's Workshop: Home to the kindly woodcarver Geppetto and his family, the most notable of which being the puppet turned human, Pinocchio.
  • The Red Lobster Inn: A seedy establishment (most resembling a pub) located near the docks. It is often visited by the local crooks and con-artists, Honest John and Gideon. It is the Disney version of the inn called "L'Osteria del Gambero Rosso" (or "The Red Crayfish Inn" in English) in the original Italian story, with a slightly different name.
  • School: An unseen learning environment for children that Pinocchio attends during the day.
  • Police station: Another unseen law establishment hinted more than once, especially by the notorious crook Honest John at the Red Lobster Inn (police is also mentioned in the promotional song "Honest John"). A giant balloon depicting a mocking caricature of a policeman can be seen on Pleasure Island for a few seconds. Lampwick mentions "cops" from his unspecified town on the coach for Pleasure Island when he befriends Pinocchio.
  • The Village Square: An often crowded area located in the heart of the village. When visiting in his traveling caravan, the "master showman", Stromboli, tends to perform his puppet shows here.

Appearances[]

Pinocchio[]

The Village is first seen when Geppetto is in his workshop making Pinocchio and when the Blue Fairy brings Pinocchio to life. The Village is then seen when Pinocchio meets Honest John and Stromboli. It is finally seen at the end of the film.

Trivia[]

  • According to the location of the original story, the Village is in Tuscany, Central Italy.
    • However the mountains in the background, the clothes and the architectonic style of the houses suggest that the Village is located in South Tyrol, in Northern Italy near Austria.
  • In the live-action film, Geppetto, the village is known as Villaggio (Italian word that means "Village").
  • The village was once slated to appear in Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days along with Pinocchio, Geppetto, Honest John, and Gideon. Like the characters, however, the village was scrapped.
  • Apparently there are no "stupid little boys" here, unlike the other towns and places the Coachman visited.
