HISTORY NOTE: The Italian Flag Fan (also called "key fan" and "weathercock fan") was very popular in Italy during the Renaissance, especially in Venice. Called the "ventarola" in Italy, these fans were constructed of fabric (either painted or embroidered), plaited straw and parchment. They had handles of wood, metal and ivory. The more ornate ones were carried by older married women or matrons, while the newly married or betrothed ladies carried cream, ivory or white ones.
Other flag fans can be found in our Flag Fans and Feather Fans Section.
