The Fascinating History of the Barbutas: Medieval Helmets of the 15th Century

Barbutas, also known as "barbudos", are a unique piece of medieval clothing history that became popular in the 15th century. These visorless medieval helmets with strategic openings for the mouth and eyes not only served as protective elements for the warriors of the time, but also became an iconic symbol of the Italian medieval era.

The term "barbuta" comes from the Italian "barbudo", and refers to a particular type of helmet that is characterized by its lack of visor and its facial opening in the shape of a T or Y. In addition to calling these helmets, it was also used the word "barbuta" to refer to the warriors who wore them. The first record of this term dates back to 1407, when it appeared in an inventory of the Gonzaga family of Mantua, thus marking the beginning of its use in the region.

The barbuta stood out for replacing the bacinete at the same time when the celadon was at its peak. Warriors who opted for the barbuta could complement it with a gorget or gorget, although historically it was usually combined with a mesh bishop's mantle, which gave it a unique and majestic appearance.

This helmet bears similarities to the Corinthian helmet, and it is speculated that its shape may have been influenced by Greco-Roman trends present in the art of the time. Despite its Italian origin, the barbuta was used almost exclusively in Italy, making it a unique historical piece that highlights this country's rich warrior tradition.
