WEFOUNDCharacter and Individuality in Decorations and Furnishings (Classic Reprint)


Pantaloon , Italian Pantalone , stock character of the 16th-century Italian commedia dell’arte—a cunning and rapacious yet often deceived Venetian merchant.

Pantaloon dressed in a tight-fitting red vest, red breeches and stockings, a pleated black cassock, slippers, and a soft brimless hat. Later versions of the character sometimes wore long trousers (pantaloons). His mask was gaunt and swarthy with a large hooked nose, and he had a disorderly gray goatee.

The humour of the role stemmed from Pantaloon’s avarice and his amorous entanglements. An abject slave to money, he would starve his servant until he barely cast a shadow. If he discharged him, he made certain to do so before dinner. If married, he was a foil for his wife, who was young, pretty, disrespectful, and completely untrustworthy, and he was also a foil for the intrigues and deceits of his daughters and servant girls. Although anxious about his reputation, he engaged in flirtations with young girls who openly mocked him.

Each of the six character traits are used within our CHARACTER COUNTS! program to help instill a positive school climate for students and a “culture of kindness”, making schools a safe environment for students to learn.

The Six Pillars of Character values are not political, religious or culturally biased. In fact, every year since 1995 our program has been officially recognized and endorsed in a National Proclamation  by the U.S. Senate and The President of the United States .
