Panama, the Neapolitan barber.
The tradition of the barber is old, but the Neapolitan “barbitonsore” is even older and more folkloric. At the time when a shave cost a “prùbbeca”, the most typical figure was the one of the itinerant barber. The barber's saloon did not exist yet, so the clever and sly barber hanging about the streets and guessing necessities and people's desires, working hours, pleased everyone, become a friend, a confident and an adviser in between a haircut and a hairstyle. Son of these traditions, Antonio (the founder), appeared on the Neapolitan scene in 1924, it took him very short to grow professionally and his style known; people remember how much he loved to shave.
