Gilt-edged white enamel Greek cross with gilt ball-tipped finials, an eagle with outstretched wings between each arm, on elaborate swivel suspension in the form of a castellated wall with three towers, green, white and red enamel inserts at the base; the face with a five-pointed gilt star imposed centrally; the reverse identical; on original ribbon with rosette denoting an award of the ‘officer’ class, the face age-faded from display; with buttonhole rosette with a gilt castellated wall denoting an award of the officer class, maker-stamped ‘A.ROSSI ROMA’. The Order was founded on 3 March 1951 to be awarded to those who render notable service to the Italian Republic and is open equally to Italian and non-Italian citizens. This example was awarded to Sir Gerald Dodson (1884-1966), Recorder of the City of London, during the State Visit to the United Kingdom of His Excellency Giovanni Gronchi, President of the Italian Republic, on the occasion of his visit to the City of London on 14 May 1958.
