Rare Original Italy Al Valore Militare Medal 1913 Libyan Campaign Pre Ww1

Rare original Bronze medal Al Valore Militare in Bronze. Measures approximately 1 5/16 in diameter. Weighs 18.2 grams on a jewelers scale including ribbon (and I estimate that the ribbon weighs one gram of that). Engraved to Carlini Carlo and ANGELAT – 1 MARZO 1913. My notes indicate that Carlino was a Captain in the 6th Alpine Division, and was from Brescia. The ribbon is soiled, stained and has some white areas as well as stitching on the face. The medal shows light to moderate wear with some scratches and spotty tarnish overall. Scrapes on a portion of the edge. This is a hobby not a living, so I try to keep it fun, otherwise why do it. _gsrx_vers_632 GS 6.9.8 (632).

MEDAGLIA COMMEMORATIVA DI FIUME Primo Tipo WW1 ITALY Commemorative Medal

Bellissimo esemplare assolutamente originale della Medaglia Commemorativa della Spedizione di Fiume, istituita da Gabriele d’Annunzio subito dopo l’occupazione di Fiume il 12.9.1919 come “Medaglia Commemorativa della Marcia di Ronchi” e modellata dallo scultore Adolfo De Carolis su precise indicazioni del “Vate” e realizzata da Johnson di Milano. Questa medaglia fa parte del primo lotto di produzione ed è completa del suo nastro originale d’epoca. E’ stata infatti ritrovata tra i cimeli di un REDUCE insieme ad altri oggetti legati all’Impresa di Fiume. La medaglia venne conferita ai legionari che presero parte alla “Marcia di Ronchi” e che arrivarono a Fiume, all’equipaggio della Regia Nave “Cortellazzo” che arrivo’ a Fiume il 22.9.1919, a coloro che parteciparono ai combattimenti dal 24 al 28.12.1920 (Natale di Sangue) e a famose personalita’, come Guglielmo Marconi, che contribuirono in varia misura alla causa fiumana. Si calcola che ne furono distribuite complessivamente circa 2500 esemplari. La medaglia in bronzo misura 39,4 mm di diametro. Ne garantisco l’originalita’ a tempo indeterminato. Fiume era una delle più floride città dell’impero austro – ungarico e quando questo si decompose alla fine della Grande Guerra e la città venne occupata dalle truppe iugoslave, gli irredentisti insorsero, accampando il fatto che Fiume era un centro etnicamente italiano. Il 12 settembre 1919 D’Annunzio era a Ronchi con un seguito di poche centinaia di uomini; ma ad essi si unirono i legionari di Venturi e buona parte dei Granatieri di Sardegna, che avevano da pochi giorni smobilitato da Fiume. A loro si aggiunsero gli Arditi del generale Zoppi e una compagnia di fanteria. Alle porte della città contesa gli uomini al seguito di D’Annunzio erano oltre duemila, tra granatieri, arditi e fanti. Il generale Pittaluga, successore del generale Grazioli, avrebbe dovuto obbedire agli ordini del suo superiore Badoglio e fermare con le armi questo esercito privato, formato da disertori e comandato da un uomo che si poneva in rotta col governo. Ma al gesto teatrale di D’Annunzio, che aprì il pastrano mostrando la medaglia d’oro e proclamando Lei non ha che a far tirare su di me, Generale! , Pittaluga rispose abbracciando il poeta ed entrando con lui in Fiume. Dopo un anno Giolitti, tornato al potere, concluse con gli alleati il Trattato di Rapallo che lasciava Fiume indipendente. D’Annunzio restava fermo nell’accettare solo ed unicamente l’annessione all’Italia del territorio di Fiume. L’ultimo atto politico rilevante del poeta fu la costituzione della Reggenza, a significare che il potere veniva comunque esercitato in nome del Re d’Italia. Il giorno di Natale del 1920 le truppe regolari entrarono in Fiume, dopo che una cannonata, sparata da una corazzata, aveva colpito la stessa residenza del Comandante. Dopo il Natale di Sangue i legionari, che avevano perso una cinquantina di uomini, abbandonarono Fiume indisturbati; D’Annunzio si trattenne ancora per poche settimane e poi se ne andò, indisturbato anche lui.

V ERY SCARCE ITALIAN OCCUPATION OF FIUME MEDAL. Circular bronze medal with integral bar for ribbon suspension; the face with a Roman eagle standard above raised arms holding daggers, inscribed HIC MANEBIMUS OPTIME (Latin = Here we will very well stay); the reverse inscribed AL LIBERATORI XII SETTEMBRE MCMXIX (To the Liberators 12 September 1919) above a wreath of laurel, a scroll below inscribed FIUME DITALIA (Italian Fiume); with ORIGINAL VINTAGE RIBBON. The medal was instituted on 12 September 1919 by Gabriele dAnnunzio, leader of the unofficial expedition to seize control of the port of Fiume. It was awarded to the 2,500 volunteers who participated in the expedition and to its notable supporters, such as the scientist and engineer Guglielmo Marconi. On 31 January 1926 by Royal Decree No 273 members of the Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale (National Security Volunteer Militia) were given the right to wear the medal and by Royal Decree No. 1179 of 5 July 1938 this was extended to all members of the Italian Armed Forces. The medal was designed by A de Carolis and manufactured by S. Johnson but was not signed or marked. The phrase Hic manebimus optime was reportedly the response of Marcus Furius Camillus, ca. 446-365 BC to the Roman senators who were on the point of abandoning Rome in the face of invasion by the Gauls in 390BC. The Treaty of Saint Germain between Austria and the victorious Allies at the end of World War I granted the port of Fiume on the Adriatic opposite Trieste to the new state of Yugoslavia (then known as the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes), despite its majority Italian population and having been promised to Italy during the war. Almost immediately, the Italian poet Gabriele dAnnunzio organized a force of volunteers and seized the city for Italy to tremendous popular acclaim. It was only on 24 December 1920 that the Italian government responded, shelling dAnnunzios headquarters and forcing his departure. The tactics and impact of a small group of volunteers prepared to use violence was not lost on an ambitious young politician named Benito Mussolini. In February 1947 Italy ceded Fiume, now renamed Rijeka, to Yugoslavia. Today the city is part of Croatia. An excellent example of a rare medal. Follow us to receive updates about NEW listings.
