A bit of history...
A curious character, that of the Gobbo (in the Neapolitan language “ò scartellate”), entered the popular imagination as a true symbol of good luck.
The Neapolitan culture has assigned to this figure the important function of chasing away the evil eye and giving those who touch it a bit of luck.
Its role is so important that it even appears in the Smorfia: its number is 57, without a doubt one of the most fortunate of the Neapolitan cabala.
