Il Capitano or the captain, is a character from the Commedia dell'Arte.  A butt who had seldom a friend in the play, was the Captain.  Spaniard usually, his character reflected the hated foreign mercenaries who crowded sixteenth century Italy.  The Capitano’s character is a boastful, cowardly bully, always in love and usually unsuccessful, he was an object for the wit of others to prey upon.  Wear it as is or let your imagination show by painting your own design.  The canvas is yours to create!
