Pulcinella in Naples

{ Naples, Italy - May 2011 }

Walking down the streets in the historic centre of Naples, we soon saw a recurring figure that seemed to the unofficial mascot of the city. A character dressed in white with a black mask, there were many figurines of him playing various musical instruments and even with pizza and spaghetti in hand. We later found out that the character is Pulcinella, which means "chick" in Italian, and it originated from 17th century theatre.
