Pulcinella, a classical character that originated from local Naples theatrics of the 17th century, is the embodiment of the spirit of Neapolitans plebians (the commoner at the bottom of the social class). The Pulcinella Statue is located at an obscure corner along the east-west Via dei Tribunali avenue in the city’s old historic centre, but you won’t miss it as there will be crowds of tourists around it. Its quirky crooked nose and puffy cheeks certainly brings out the humorous side of this Neapolitan character. Take a photo with it while rubbing his nose for good luck, and move on to the next attraction.

The character of Pulcinella was created n the 17th-century.

Pulcinella is known as a schemer and a thief and has become a common character in Neapolitan puppetry. This sculpture was created in 2012.

There is a belief that if you rub Pulcinella’s nose, then you’ll be blessed with good luck, or at the very least, the chance to return to Naples!

You can see Pulcinella’s nose has been well rubbed and it is very shiny in comparison to the rest of the statue.

There was a line to rub Pulcinella's nose, but fun for a pic. The best part is it's directly across from Sorbillo, the BEST pizza in town!

Interesting bronze stature. You are supposed to rub the nose and get good luck!!! Seriously - it should be shut off right now as I couldn’t believe the number of people doing that without regard for health!

Pulcinella is a classical character taken from an early form of theatre and later puppetry and is a part of Neopolitan culture, symbolising the voice of the people. Visit the bronze statue in Via dei Tribunali in the old historic centre and rub the nose for good luck. It's always worth a try!

This is where I understood what Napolitans cherish and who the figurine portrayed everywhere was. Pulcinella (Polichinelle) is the symbol of the people and their wisdom. It portrays the mentality of the people and of Southern Italy. Rub his nose and you will be a happy man.

Placing your hand on the nose with the beak of the mask will bring you good luck - give a try. His nose is shinny since it is one of the most "touched" statues in Naples.
His name is Pulcinella and is a character in Neapolitan puppetry, he resembles the people of Napoli.
