Pinocchio, San Gimignano, Italy, 2017
Here’s a photo that I made in Italy last year in the medieval Tuscan hill town of San Gimignano. It’s a depiction, of course, of Carlo Collodi’s famous fictional character, Pinocchio, whose nose would grow longer every time he told a lie.
I am dedicating this post to another frequent liar, Donald Trump, whose nose – if he were like Pinocchio (and if he were looking up) – would be close to piercing the stratosphere right about now for all of the many lies that he has told these past two years. (Do you think that the moon, or even Mars, are in reach?)
