A friend of my wife gave this wonderful gift to her son from a trip to Italy this year.

“This mask belongs to the series of the captains. Sometimes impersonated a soldier of noble sentiments and whimsical or boastful braggart who boasted of securities not owned enterprises and never carried out: in both cases malcelava actually terrified of having to face a battle or a duel. With the Spanish domination of Italy and after the descent of Charles V, the captain took on more and more like the Spanish soldier, acquiring diction and idioms purely Iberian. The dress reminiscent of the uniforms of Spanish soldiers at the time, but enriched by ribbons and very colorful.”
