A bit of history...
Pulcinella is the mask of Naples, one of the most popular and ancient.
Already known in Roman times and disappeared with the arrival of Christianity, the Pulcinella mask was resurrected in the 1500s with the Commedia dell’Arte and has been one of the most popular carnival masks ever since.
Pulcinella is lazy, ironic, opportunistic, cheeky and talkative. He has an insatiable greed and is always looking for food.
For a plate of macaroni he is willing to do anything: steal, lie, cheat and take a beating.
Pulcinella is of few words, a little clumsy, but always on the move, looking for ways to escape the prevarication and greed of the rich and powerful.
The name of Pulcinella probably derives from the Neapolitan "pollicino", which means chick, and refers to the timbre of his voice.
