SCARAMUCCIA


SCARAMUCCIA FACCIA BUFFA

SEMPRE PRONTO A FAR BARUFFA

MA AL POSTO DELLA SPADA

LUI BRANDISCE UNA CHITARRA.


Similarly christened after a character from the commedia and also known for covering only the upper half of the face, the Scaramuccia was a black velvet mask distinctive for the thin, pointed and disproportionately extended nose that served to emphasize the character’s typically vainglorious yet cowardly personality. A roguish adventurer and swordsman who replaced Il Capitano in later troupes, he usually serves a master who is not of a high social scale.
