Helmet all'antica Attributed to Filippo Negroli (Italian, Milan, ca. 1510–1579) Date: ca. 1532–35 Fashioned as a head of tightly curled hair encircled by a wreath of oak leaves, this helmet evokes the appearance of an ancient hero, perhaps a Roman emperor. The reference to the oak (rovere, in Italian) may indicate that the helmet was made for a member of the della Rovere family, dukes of Urbino. The cheekpieces are probably nineteenth-century restorations.
