I am interested in the time of the creation of the puppet and the passage of his death. Pinocchio comes alive while the carpenter Geppetto is carving him in his workshop. When we speak of an end, some people have wanted to see his death as a punishment for "his many faults." Others explain that Pinocchio was not hanged for his "numerous failures" but what happened is that two swindlers, the fox and the cat, tried by all means to steal the gold coins to the child, until at last they catch him and decide to hang him in a large oak. Fortunately for the children, later versions have been less dramatic.
"The right way is reached through knowledge and wisdom. What had been a log of wood and then a puppet, he finally became a real person, after overcoming adversity presented to him." Say that Collodi was a Mason, and that he could pretend, through the story of Pinocchio, make an allegory about the formation of people based on honor, truth and virtue.
