Italian School Uniform Garments: Rompers


Figure 1.-- While we have not noted rompers being used as a regular school garment, we do seeing rompers being used in custodial settings like orphanages. The images we have found seem to be summer outfits employed in part because of the heliotropic approached conidered healthy for children. We note boys in a classroon all wearing the same romper suits as a uniform. There is uniform available about the school, but stronly suspect it was an orphanage school, in part becuse the boys are all so perfectly outfitted in the same summer romper outfit with cross strap fronts. It apparently was a facility located in Rome. The photograph is undated, but we suspect it was just after World War II when the country had many orphans that needed care. The captiob read only, "School Children in Italy: This view of italian school children shows them in heir classroomall dressed alike in simple one-piece costume."

We do not see many Italian boys wearing rompers to school. We suspect that as in France that younger boys did wear rompers to pre-school, but we cannot yet confirm this. By 1st grade boys were mostly wearing short pants. And we have noted some boys wering romper suits outside of school.

School uniforms were not common in Italy, except for the smocks dopted by many schools. The boys look to be older primary boys about 11 years old or so. We also note boys wearing romper sun suits at an orphanage school for handicapped children about 1950. It looks to be school uniform rather than a gym suit. We do not think that this was very common. Girls in secondary schools probably wore romper-type gym suits, but we do not yet have any photographic evidence.
