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 (brocaded, painted or embroidered), plaited straw and parchment (with paintings, quotes and poems). 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 ivory or white ones.
