Pulcinella

THE CHARM OF PULCINELLA IN NAPLES

Pulcinella is the best-known comedy mask; the stories of its origin are varied; there are those who claim that "Pulcinella" comes from a small chicken because it has a nose; another story says it comes from Puccio d'Aniello, a peasant of Acerra, who in the sixteenth century joined a company of passing wagons as a fool. Others still argue that Pulcinella descends from Maccus, a character of the Roman Atellans. 
Although its origins are uncertain, one thing is certain, Pulcinella is known throughout the world as one of Naples' key symbols, the origins of which are dubious. In fact, he is white (dressed) and black (mask), and appears young or old, sad or cheerful, rich or poor.

But Pulcinella also sums up the vices and virtues of the Neapolitans, sociable, ironic, playful, and devoted to superstition. 
A few lines are not enough to describe what Pulcinella is all about, but we can honor it by depicting it to the best of our abilities.
