Italia Range Saturno & Cords

A cappello romano (literally Roman hat) or saturno (because its appearance is reminiscent of the ringed planet Saturn) is a hat with a wide, circular brim and a rounded rim worn outdoors in some countries by Catholic clergy, when dressed in a cassock. It is made of either beaver fur or felt, and lined in white silk.

 

Unlike many other articles of ecclesiastical attire, it serves no ceremonial purpose, being primarily a practical item. (The galero is a ceremonial wide brim hat no longer worn.) The cappello romano is not used in liturgical services. Since the general abandonment of the cassock as street dress, it is uncommon even in Rome today, though it was quite popular there and in some other countries with a Catholic majority population from the 17th century until around 1970.

There are some, mostly minor, differences in the designs of cappelli, depending on the rank of the wearer. The pope wears a red cappello with gold cords. Cardinals formerly also had the privilege of wearing a red cappello, but this rule was overturned by Paul VI, and now Cardinals' cappelli are black, as are those of all other clerics.

A selection of traditional Saturno clergy hats is offered below, made to your sizing and requirements in Rome by our tailors.  These wonderful, traditional hats are fast becoming

popular again among clergy and we are pleased to be among the few who are able to bring you these items again.

We are also able to offer you the cords and tassels for the Saturno too. 

 

All made to measure in Italy so please allow sufficient time for your garment to be crafted, usually 4 weeks
