(ITALIAN HORN AMULET)
The cornuto, corno, or cornicello is an Italian amulet of ancient origin. Corno means “horn” and cornicello means “little horn” — these names refer to a long, gently twisted horn-shaped amulet worn in Italy to protect against the evil eye. A regionally popular amulet, they are primarily found in Italy and in America among descendents of Italian immigrants.
