Barbute (or Barbuta) was a popular model of Italian helmet among infantry until the end of the XV century. Name of helmet was derived from Italian word “Barba” (“Beard”).

Depending on the region of using, such medieval armor helmet could be called “Italian sallet” or “Italian bascinet”. It could also have various design: cheek plates were covering face completely or partially. Despite of almost complete head protection, barbute is classified as open helmet due to uncovered opening from the front.
