Edizione di Pinocchio in occasione delle celebrazioni per il cinquantenario della morte di Collodi  (Firenze, Marzocco, 1942)

A close net of cultural offices and institutions are set up in the city, all involved in supporting the war cause.

There is an intense agenda of initiatives addressed to a vast public, performances in the city squares, entertainment for soldiers, fairs inspired by folk tradition.

Also “high” culture institutions, such as the Gabinetto Vieusseux and the Maggio musicale, include clearly propagandistic events in their programme.
