Venetian Gondolier’s Hat

Venice, Italy. 10:57am, September 24, 2010. Venetian gondoliers wear hats like these. According to local hat makers, the traditional hat is made of woven straw with coloured bands on both the crown and brim. The summer hat has a band that matches the inside of the gondola that the hat wearer operates; the winter hat is black like the gondola canopy. True to legend, many gondoliers look handsome, with or without their nice hats.
