Typology: puppet character created by parmesan puppeter Italo Ferrari and later developed and polished up by his son Giordano.

Origins:
Bargnocla, born in 1914 to satireze a local shoe maker, can be easily recognized by his peculiar way of speaking and a huge bump (bargnocla in parmesan dialect) on his forehead.  His full name is Vladimiro Falesi and he embodies all good qualities and faults of the people of Parma.
Beyond all doubts, he is the symbol of the Ferrari Puppet Theatre.
