Popular Neapolitan folklore tells of a character called Pulcinella, who - with a famously mischievous and lively nature - is said to represent the creative soul of Naples and the effervescent spirit of its people. The symbol of Pulcinella’s mask is a common sight throughout Naples, a reminder of the city’s  rich heritage and pulsating dynamism; its eclectic fusion of tradition and modernity. 

It is fitting, therefore, for a silhouette of the mask to have been chosen as the emblem of Marco Pescarolo, a label that takes pride in its Neopolitan roots, crafting trousers that occupy the space between traditional Italian elegance and contemporary cosmopolitan style. 

The brand was brought to life in 1999 by Marco Pescarolo, who hails from an entrepreneurial background, and his wife Anna de Matteis, a daughter of weavers with a particular passion for textiles. The couple melded their skillsets and have spent the past two decades in constant pursuit of excellence, sourcing the finest fabrics and employing the most efficient production methods, in an effort to keep the label true to its rich Italian heritage whilst embracing innovation and cutting-edge design.
