Italian Horn Meaning
corno, cornuto, or cornicello is a horn necklace that is based on the origin
of Italy. In Italian, corno means “horn”, and cornicello means “little horn. It
was said to be an amulet to protect the wearer from the “evil eye”, which is
another name for a sickness transmitted by a person who intentionally gives it
to the person. It is dangerous and contagious to anyone who looks at it. The
Evil Eye harms nursing mothers, the sperm of men, etc, the “Forces of
Generation”. Italian horns are often carved out of pure gold, silver, and a
special red material, and have been worn by people for centuries. The red
symbolizes the victory over enemies, and they are the most common. Rarer silver
or even gold amulets mean the same, but the color doesn’t represent anything in
