Pulcinella

Pulcinella is found in English Punch and Judy shows, a dwarfish humpback with a crooked nose, the cruel bachelor who chased pretty girls.Philosophical, eternally melancholic, a dreamer as only a representative of the Neapolitan culture could be, Pulcinella has a spirit all of his own. No tensions or despair, his melancholic approach to life makes him coast through difficult situations yet in the end, simply getting out of them in the same simple way he got involved in the first place. 

At this character evolved, various masks or costumes became a part of his persona. However, gradually the simple plain white costume with the sugar loaf hat (the “coppolone”) was assumed. The character had his own dreamy way of life, engrossed in his poetry and simple philosophy.
