I share with you some fascist medals of my collection, among the most widespread and that could not miss in the medal count of 1919 squad members, or in that of the members of the MVSN (Voluntary Militia for National Security), better known as "Black Shirts" and it was worn by Benito Mussolini , until the simple MVSN soldiers.
I hope are interesting for collectors of the kind, which remember that there are around many reproduction also good quality, particularly on n° 2.
1) Medal "Marcia su Roma" official version, designed by sculptor "Eugenio Baroni" and produced by "FM Lorioli & Castelli-Milano".

3)Cross for 10 years of service in the MVSN.
4)Medal of Italo-Austrian War "Bronzo Nemico".
This commemorative medal was distributed to WW1 veterans, was actually a military medal pre fascism, but was worn with pride by all MVSN members, mostly Army Veterans or "Arditi" (assault troops of WW1).
On the one hand there is the face of Vittorio Emanuele II king of Italy, on the other the words "Coined in enemy bronze" because had been produced using bronze of cannons captured to Austrians.
For each year of war was added a bar on ribbon.
