Wigs were worn in Italy and elsewhere, but Hollywood has much exaggerated the extent to which wigs were generally worn in those days. Soldiers might wear them on ceremonial occasions, but for most of them wigs were very impractical in everyday service and hardly ever worn then. The better-off citizens (and only them) might wear them, but mostly when they had to dress up for some occasion, to cover a bald head or ward off the cold. Men with a good head of hair just powdered it a little and pulled it in a tail. Wigs were warm, itchy and often ill-fitting, which probably induced Italian men to really only wear them if an occasion required it.
