Zucchetto is a dome-shaped Christian brimless holy cap that fits the head well and shows a little hair all around. As it somewhat has a half-pumpkin shape, it is called a Zucchetto, deriving its name from similarly shaped vegetable, Zucchini.
Zucchetto has a 6-panel unstructured crown with a thin leather lining for insulation, wearing comfort, and giving some structure to the cap. However, nowadays, cloth lining has become more in use.
Zucchetto’s color signifies the wearer’s rank, for example, the Pope wears white, the Cardinals wear Scarlet, and the Priests wear a black Zucchetto.
