Murano hand blown glass vase, Pinocchio is a vase in blown Murano glass that bears a strong likeness to the well-known character created by Carlo Collodi. A tribute to one of the most inimitable icons of Italian culture in the world, the Pinocchio of InternoItaliano designed by Giulio Iacchetti shifts the focus away from the typical material of the marionette – wood – to elegant colored glass, in three different sizes. Ironically enough, the strong point of the project, which is totally made by hand, is the nose in white glass paste, whose length always varies depending on the whim of the master glassblowers… so every piece is one of a kind.
