Five-pointed bronze star with dihedral arms, a square eyelet above for ribbon suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the head of the great Italian general and patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882) facing left; the reverse with a circular central medallion inscribed ‘BRIGATE / GARIBALDI’, dated ‘1943 / 1945’ below and circumscribed ‘GUERRA DI LIBERAZIONE NAZIONALE’ (War of National Liberation); on original slightly grubby ribbon.

The Medal was instituted at Rome on 8 September 1947 to be awarded to those who had fought in the Garibaldi Brigades against both German occupation and the Italian fascists of the Italian Social Republic.

The Medal is rare.
