The typical 15th century Barbute, or Barbuta as it known in Italy, was a one piece medieval helmet that had a T or Y-shaped opening for the eyes. The opening in the helmet also ran down vertically the length of the helm in the front. This medieval helmet had long sides that went down to the base of the neck. There was typically a reinforcing ridge or comb on the top of the helmet to provide additional strength and to deflect battle blows from the opposing weapon wielding adversary. It was generally worn in conjunction with a chainmail collar or full coif to provide additional protection. This visor-less helmet was sometimes also lined with thick padding or with soft material like batting or velvet to provide cushioning or padding to absorb the shock of sword blows. the barbute also had reinforcement along the T-opening to add additional rigidity due to the open slot running vertically down the face. A Mantuan family by the name of Gonzaga gave the barbute it's name in the early 15th century.
