A legend says that formerly in the city of Taranto people caught a strange disease, tarantism, caused by the poisonous bite of the tarantula. To cure it, the whole village danced the tarantella, a dance supposed to dissipate the venom. But in reality its bite is not dangerous for humans and we do not know if this disease really existed.
The tarantula is part of the wolf spider family, and is native to southern Europe. The tarantula can reach 3 cm long, without the legs. She lives on the ground and digs a burrow filled with silk in which she lives.

For almost 25 years now, Papo has been helping younger and older children to develop and to discover the world around them. Childhood is a time of dreams and adventures, and this was what we had in mind when we decided to create, invent, innovate with a wide range of animals or characters. One constant factor which has not changed over the years is quality (the quality of the sculptures and of the materials used) which has always been our watchword and will remain so.
