Jacometto Veneziano painted Portrait of a Young Man in the 1480s. The subject’s name is unknown, but his hair sure is fancy. His friends probably called him Donaldo Trumpo.
Who knew Donald Trump looked to the Renaissance for hair tips? This style is called a zazzera, considered fashionable in Florence and Venice in the 1480-90s.
A man with such a notable tufts was called a zazzeruto. A very vain person, one who was especially concerned with his hair, was called a zazzeatore.
I’m giving The Donald a “terrific” new nickname — Zazzeatore Trump! And how about this new, zazzera-inspired slogan, “Make Our Hair-ica Great Again!”
