Subject: A hat for summer in Italy
Ciao Ziners,

This may seem like a silly question but as one whose hair is thinning with age, it is very important to me.

This summer in Italy, I probably will need to wear a hat to avoid sunburn on my head and shade my eyes. I wish to blend in as much as possible for an American tourist, both in dress and behavior. I realize that Italians do not wear baseball caps so that leaves me with the simple question. What type of hat does a middle aged (ho cinquanta anni) 50 year old Italian wear when outside on a sunny summer day?

I could, of course, simply purchase a hat in Italy. But, I like to be prepared if possible.
