Miniature bronze Greek cross with loop and ring for ribbon suspension; the face with the cipher of the Italian Republic on the upper arm, an upright sword with oak branch on the lower arm, the lateral arms inscribed ‘VALORE DI GUERRA’; the reverse with the rayed five-pointed star of the Italian Republic centrally; diameter 15.69mm (0.62 inch); on original ribbon. The Cross was instituted by Royal Decree 1480 on 17 October 1941 to be awarded for military valour. After the abolition of the monarchy following the referendum of 1946, a revised version was instituted by Decree 773 of the Italian Republic on 8 September 1949. This example is of the rare type C version with the inscription ‘Valore di Guerra’ rather than ‘al Valore Militare’.
