Miniature circular bronze medal with integral bar for ribbon suspension; the face with the head of King Vittorio Emanuele III in helmet looking left, circumscribed ‘GUERRA PER L’UNITA D’ITALIA 1915 1918’; the reverse with a winged Victory on shields held over the helmeted heads of soldiers and circumscribed ‘CONIATO NEL BRONZO NEMICO’ (Struck from enemy bronze); diameter 17.42mm (0.68 inch); on possibly original ribbon. The medal was instituted on 29 July 1920 and, since the war, primarily with Austria, of 1915 to 1918 was regarded as a continuation of the Risorgimento (unification of Italy), it shared the same ribbon as that for the War of Independence instituted in 1865. It was awarded to military and auxiliary services active in the war of 1915 to 1918. The miniature is not often found.
