Who knows if the accountant Bianchi, sales representative of the sixties, who told his daughter extraordinary tales on the phone every night, today he would use the ’mobile’ or the fax … in any case, the Favole al telefono do not seem to know the passage of time: the countries visited by Giovannino Perdigiorno, the tiny Alice Cascherina, the nonconformist characters, the unexpected events and the sweet chocolate streets are the strengths of that inexhaustible capacity for invention, which Gianni Rodari knew how to combine with the observation of reality.
