What is gola?

What Does gola Mean

The concept of gola comes from the Latin word gluttony . The term refers to the throat of an individual.
The ruff, therefore, is the area between the entrance of the esophagus and the larynx and the soft palate . It is a vulnerable region that, in the case of animals , is usually the target of attacks by many predators.

It is common for the idea of gola to be used to refer to the throat and, by extension, to the voice of a singer . For example: “Tomorrow I have a show, so I must take care of the gola” , “The singer once again marveled at his incomparable gola” , “The years of excesses played havoc with the artist's gola” .

The piece that, in an armor, allowed to protect the throat is also called gola . The gola was placed on the breastplate (the sector of the armor that guaranteed the coverage of the chest) and even protected the back of the head , especially the sector that the bacinete did not cover.
Originally made with mesh , the gola began to be used in the 13th century . Then came the metal golas that could be opened and closed and finally these pieces were replaced by the gorget .
Another use of gola refers to an ornament of lace and tulle or folded canvas that was formerly used on the neck . A ruffle is also a crescent-shaped military insignia that hangs from the neck.
The navigable channel that allows the entry of the boats to a port and the architectural molding with an S profile are also called gola.
