* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: a whole book, "Pinocchio: un libro parallelo" (Pinocchio: a parallel book), by Giorgio Manganelli, is dedicated to this aim. The author remarks that some figure are really ambiguous and suspended between life and death: the Blue Fairy appears to be the main one. On her first apparition, the Blue Fairy herself states to be a dead girl waiting for her coffin. She is very pale. Azure hair is often a characteristic of corpses. After Pinocchio is hanged by the Cat and the Fox and almost dead, she is declared a fairy and becomes a helper of the main character, a sort of surrogate sister and mother. After, she is said to be dead another time. Also the Cricket is innocently creepy (but not like the Fairy): now dead (killed by Pinocchio at the begin), now a ghost, now living (in the house of the Blue Fairy). A conjecture of Manganelli is that the Fairy was a dying goddess and mistress of beasts (dogs, woodpeckers, ...), and that the "sacrifice" of Pinocchio at the oak gave her a temporary new life. The fact that Pinocchio is originated by wood needs consideration, too and it is possible to think that Pinocchio has some hidden , unknown connection with her world.
