Coppola Cap

Coppola Cap  

The coppola is a traditional kind of flat cap typically worn in Sicily and Calabria (where is it known as còppula or berretto), Sardinia (where it came to be known, in the local language, as berritta, or bonete or bonetu, possibly from the Latin abonnis), Corsica, and Malta.

First used by English nobles during the late 18th century, the coppola began to be used in Sicily and Calabria in the early 20th century as a driving cap, usually worn when at the wheel driving the car. The coppola is usually made in tweed.
