Men's garment

from the Italian Renaissance

Period: around 1450

This men's gown (giornea) from the Italian Renaissance was made from a heavy velvet lined with silk brocade in the typical pattern of the Italian Quattrocento.
It was modelled on works from the sketchbook of Marco Zoppo (1433-1478).

The front and back of the giornea are laid in tubular pleats, which are held together by a belt. A kind of cape merges into the wide sleeves, which are trimmed with "ermine" (faux fur) at the front and back neckline. The hem of this men's garment is also trimmed.

There is a matching Renaissance headgear made of woollen felt.
