Biography's Source:


Carlo Lorenzi - whose pseudonym, Collodi, was taken from the name of the village where his mother was born - was born in Italy in 1826. He lived in Florence, where he held high government posts, edited an important newspaper, and was decorated for valor in the army.

It was after his retirement that Collodi devoted his time to writing stories for children. He is best remembered for Pinocchio, which has become a universal classic.
