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.
