Once upon a time there was an old wood carver called Geppetto. He had a lot of imagination and a great love for his work. One day a friend, Mastro Ciliegia, gave him a lovely old piece of wood knowing that he would be pleased. Early the next day Geppetto took up the piece of wood and decided that he would carve a puppet who would help him feel less lonely. He worked hard at the piece of wood and at the end he created a puppet that came to life with a touch of magic, becoming his life-long companion. And what if Geppetto that morning had made a pipe out of that piece of old wood instead of a puppet?
