Product Information
Specification
ITALY: Bronze Medal of Merit and Commemorative Medal of the Friuli
Earthquake (1976). 
Rare initial type of the medal, signed by Giandomenico. 
On the obverse: The damaged clock tower of Colloredo (a small town in
the Friuli area, right at the epicenter of the earthquake), with a huge rent
in the structure. Two hands reach out towards each other in a gesture of 
offering assistance. 
On the reverse, a circular inscription: The Supreme Government
Commissioner for Friuli 1976. The medal was instituted in 1977 and was 
awarded to Italians and foreigners who assisted in succoring the 
population of Friuli (the extreme northeastern region of Italy) following 
the earthquakes of May and Sep. 1976.
The Medals were established in 3 classes (gold, silver, and bronze).
The medals for the military personnel (as of this example) were called
"Commemorative Medals" and were issued only in bronze with this
type of ribbon. The Merit Medals (for civilians) had a 4 stripes ribbon. 
The medal is rarely seen.
