A Mano Cornuto has graced both my Nonna's entryway (Nonna is Italian for Grandmother) and my Mother's Neck (Dianna) since I can remember...

Have an Evil Eye Problem?? -- Here's one for You! -- The Mano Cornuto (horned hand) is an Italian amulet of ancient origin. Whether made as a gesture or worn as an amulet, the mano cornuto is used for magical protection against the evil eye. The evil eye is believed to harm nursing mothers and their babies, bearing fruit trees, milking animals, and the sperm of men -- the forces of generation. The Neapolitan custom of making mano cornuto charms from silver (sacred to the moon goddess Luna) and blood coral (sacred to the sea goddess Venus) hints at the cultural survival of a link between the horned animal head gesture and ancient worship of a neolithic-era mother- or fertility-goddess whose consort was a male deity sometimes called the Horned God. Some archaeologists have theorized that the ancient belief in the sacredness of the horned animal head -- specifically the bull's head or bucranium -- derives from its coincidental resemblance to the female human genitals, consisting of a vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Whether or not this is the case, the mano cornuto is still a popular gesture made by Italian men to protect their genitalia from the evil eye.
