The Barbuta Helm Barbuta's have their origins in Italian bascinets of the late 14th and early 15th Century. The Barbuta is a conical, open-faced helmet, whose sides and back are extended down offering excellent face and neck protection. It is characterized by its rounded skull and a t-shaped opening for the face, which are sometimes expanded into a fully open face. The barbuta and the Italian style of sallet (celata) were related, the difference being that the Barbuta was longer and had a shaped face opening, as here, with rounder eyes and a projecting nasal. It bears a strong resemblance to classical Greek helmets and is often referred to as the "Corinthian Barbuta" for this reason. The Barbuta found favour in the area of Venice and the north-east coast, and an early example, dated to around 1420, from the Rhodes armouries, has a crown of one piece, and the tubular sides made out of another piece, which is riveted on, horizontally around the brow level.
