About Pulcinella
Pulcinella is a fictional character that represents Naples and the Napolitano spirit of life. He is well-known for his white costume with a simple black mask. As legend has it, Pulcinella avoided work and trouble through his disguise.

While working in a pizzeria, Pulcinella spent more time entertaining than working. He would play and dance around, but when trouble threatened, he would hide in the flour bin, escaping the troubles of life.

Pulcinella's Italian Restaurant, an Italian restaurant in Durham, North Carolina, provides Southern Italian food and New York Style pizza for dine in, takeout, or catering.
