Miniature circular bronze medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the head of King Vittorio Emanuele III facing left, circumscribed ‘VITTORIO EMANUELE III RE D’ITALIA’; the reverse inscribed ‘UNITÀ / D’ITALIA / 1848-1922’ within a circular laurel wreath; diameter 17.21mm (0.68 inch); on original ribbon. The medal was instituted on 18 August 1940 and updated the 1848-1918 Medal issued in 1922 to reflect the Expedition to Fiume and the March on Rome and was awarded to participants in either of those two events. This version of the Medal is much rarer than the earlier one, especially in miniature.
