Here he is, well before Guignol, the emblematic figure of the puppet in Europe.
This charlatan, always adored in England under the name of Punch,
returns to us with a rhythmic history, taken from the collection of L. E. Duranty (1861).
The insatiable Polichinelle is thirsty, extremely thirsty.
Only a barrel of wine can solve the problem, as long as he doesn´t have to pay for it!
However, the owner of the wine is not giving it away without a fight and casts a spell on the barrel.
Who said that Polichinelle was puppet to surrender without a fight!
