From the Vatican: our capello Romano...

Italian mens' fashion: ever practical, timeless, elegant. With this hat the sun is so kept from the back of your neck, ears and nose.
There are many names for it. For some it's the Roman flat hat, for others it's il saturno while still for perhaps most it's il capello Romano.

A hat from Silvestrini! My goodness, what memories. He had a small shop in the Corso VE by the Chiesa Nuova, and he sold ecclesiastical hats and shoes, marvelous shoes.
