Italian WWI Alpini Soldier’s Mountain Cap> (Item I-FAS 4-1)

DESCRIPTION: The Alpini, meaning “The Alpines” were and are the elite mountain-warfare soldiers of the Italian Army. They were originally formed in 1872, and their mission was to protect Italy’s northern mountainous borders. They distinguished themselves during WWI when they fought against Austro-Hungarian forces in what has been called “The War in Snow and Ice.” During WWII the Alpini fought together with German forces mostly on the eastern front, being tasked to hold the front in the Don River plains. During WWII Italy fielded six Alpine divisions. They saw combat in France, Africa, Italy, Albania, the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, and Greece. They were faithful to their leader, Benito Mussolini, and dedicated to the ill-fated mission to rid the world of the menace of international communism. The cap is quite rare and examples do show up from time to time, but (invariably) missing the feather; this one has the correct elusive plume! The original owner of the cap undoubtedly was Catholic because his hat is “holy”; excuse the pun! What we are saying is that the piece, although great looking, is, unfortunately, full of moth holes. “Those damned moths are very fond of Italian food, or it would seem so.” Seriously, however, this is a very sharp-looking Italian forage cap and really quite rare in any condition. It has the proper bullion eagle device as the cap’s badge, and the proper crow’s feather with the holding insignia. The label inside reads: “ARISTON, Qualita Insuperabile, Super Extra.” There is a signature “MOLO,” probably the former owner. Yes, there are quite a few holes, but the cap is generally in sound condition and will make a great display item in any good WWII collection. This is a good investment. This is an NCO rank.

Italian Fascist Fez of the MVSN; Corporal Rank (Item I-FAS 4-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very nice example of the traditional black fez of the MVSN. This has the inverted ‘V’ on its side in bullion material indicating the wearer was a corporal in the "Blackshirt" brigades. The fez was originally an ancient headwear piece used by various elite forces within Europe. Mussolini brought it back and it was his choice always for his own uniform. The MVSN (Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezze Nazionale), Security Volunteer Militia or "Blackshirts," were paramilitary groups in Italy during the period immediately following WWI and up until the end of WWII. Inspired by Giuseppe Garibaldi’s “Red Shirts,” the Blackshirts were organized by Mussolini as a military function of his fascist movement. The founders of these paramilitary groups were nationalist intellectuals, former army officers, or members of the special corps Arditi, young landowners who opposed peasants’ and country laborers’ unions. These Blackshirts were established as the Squadristi in 1919 and consisted of many disgruntled soldiers who may have numbered 200,000 by the time of the famed Mussolini March on Rome from October 27-29, 1922. In 1922 the Squadristi were reorganized into the milizia and formed numerous bandiere and on February 1923, the Blackshirts became the MVSN. The organization was formed on the order of the ancient Roman army. In 1940 the MVSN was able to muster 340,000 first-line combat troops providing three divisions; 1st, 2nd, and 4th, all three of which were lost in the North African Campaign. Although for the most part they fought bravely they had poor leadership; nothing like the crack troops of the German Africa Corps under the Desert Fox (Rommel). This fez is truly a classic example of this great uniform. It is in fine condition with only slight mothing at its top. It is designated as a size ‘57.’ It has the traditional bush side décor and bullion Italian fasces on the front and of course the NCO’s inverted bullion (V). The inside liner is in gray silk. It has a stamp in the sweat band that reads ‘Roma’ and this maker is again seen in the inside crown. It says “Depositata ROMA.” Above this is the company logo with the Capitoline wolf with Romulus and Remus, the founders of ancient Rome. Below this are the colors of the “March on Rome” used on sashes, and important flags and standards. This is a beautiful WWII relic of a time of grandeur and mighty Imperium gone forever!

Mussolini Picture (Item I-FAS 4-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very great portrait of the great Italian leader; actually beautiful! I have yet to see finer. The detail is superb. It measures about 23 x 16 inches and is nicely framed. It is a period piece from the 1930s and was preserved well. It was published in New York, believe it or not, while the Americans were allowed to admire him for all his many accomplishments. The media later told us he was a bad guy and Yanks love and adore their media much more than they love truth. Anyway, it's great of a great! Viva Il Duce.

A Tropical Pith Helmet for the GIL Italian Youth Organization (Item I-FAS 4-5)

DESCRIPTION: This tropical pith helmet was similar to the ones used by the Bersaglieri in North Africa. The GIL Youth Organization sent volunteers to assist with military matters in Africa. The GIL stood for Gioventù Italiana Del Littorio (or Italian Youth of the Lictors). The helmet bears the symbol of the GIL and it is mounted on a rosette of the national Italian colors. Fine condition! Marked with a ‘size 54’ inside. It has a pocket on the right side and this could be for the wearing of feathers just like the Bersaglieri did for certain Gala occasions. A very nice and rare WWII relic.

DESCRIPTION: These are some of the special units of elite police in Italy who waged war on the mob. This is not a WWII uniform, but we admire these tough cops so much that we decided to include this sharp uniform in our Italian section. These men are assigned to the Carabinieri Military Police. This uniform is from the Tuscania Airborne Regiment. It has to be the most beautiful and dramatic uniform of any police unit worldwide. The outfit we have is comprised of tunic, dress cap, beret and trousers. All are in excellent condition. Anyone who says Italians can't be crack troops hasn't met the Carabinieri!

DESCRIPTION: This is a tunic, overseers cap and trousers in good condition. Quite rare that this is for a ranking officer (Lt. Colonel of the General Staff). The tunic bears his campaign ribbons; but not being an expert in Fascist items, we do not recognize them. There are a few minor holes in the crotch area (shown). The cap does not match in color, but it is a proper cap for this rank. Generally in fine condition.

Marble Sword Presented to Benito Mussolini (Item I-FAS 4-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a completely unique relic of Fascist Italy. It is a sword completely made out of marble and rock crystal -- the sword is in the shape of a Roman Empire weapon known as the “Gladius” in Latin, also known as the "sword that conquered the world." A reference to the might and power of the Roman Empire, Benito Mussolini the strong man of the 1920’s to the mid 1940’s wanted to revitalize modern Italy but he wanted at the same time to bring back the days of heroism and military splendor. His famous words are remembered “Better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep,” is nearly forgotten as the men of the earth sink deeper into liberalism and intellectual slavery to non-heroic ideals fit for sheeple. Well, enough of that for now.

The sword is an artistic creation handmade in the city of Carrara. This city is in the province of Massa Carrara (Tuscany) and is famous for the various types of marble quarried there. It is 100 km. west-northwest of Florence. Settlements in the area are known since the 9th century, B.C.  The current town originated from the Borough built to house workers in the marble quarries created by the Romans after their conquest of Lingulia in the early 2nd century, BC.  At one time it was a hotbed of leftist and Communist activity but along came the “Duce” and most of the quarry workers after hearing him speak became dedicated Fascists because they saw greater benefits in the Fascist programs for the workers. It seems the trade council of Carrara at some point in the 30’s, decided to make a small gift to the Fascist leader and it was decided that a Roman Gladius was the appropriate present to the greatest Roman of all. It of course must be made of marble coming from this renowned ‘City of Stone’ so it was decided that such a Gladius must be constructed from all the various types of marble and crystal that has been quarried there. If you look at the pictures, you can see that this was indeed accomplished in the beautiful artistic presentation employing some different types of Carrara marble. The grip is in wonderful grained yellow-brown stone while the cross guard is in the finest grade pink marble. The blade is of the same Carrara marble that was used in the Roman baths and in fact later it adorned the German Reich’s Chancellery wall and floors. The finial or top is formed in mine cut crystal as are the ends of the cross guard.  Rarely when marble is mined such perfect pieces of crystal show up and they are professionably cut much the same as a rough diamond is handled.  On one side of the cross guard is the large (M) in silver (Mussolini), on the other side is the Fascist eagle (Aquila). The piece is 21 inches long and 7 inches at the widest point of the blade. A thing of beauty to behold and an extremely prodigious relic of great importance to history of a turbulent time.

We received this sword directly from an old veteran of the 7th Army who accepted the surrender of it from an Italian partisan who claimed he took it from some sort of Fascist HQ in the town of Varnando de Costa near the village of Predappio. This was the place where the Duce was born July 29th 1883. We assume that after Mussolini received the sword he presented it to the HQ there that maintained a small museum dedicated to their leader where other valued Fascist relics were kept in reverence and pride. Like so many veterans insist when selling us their relics we are not at liberty to disclose his name. This is at the insistence of his family (he is now deceased). Please note: The sword is all there but due to the ravages of war there were several cracks and breaks in it as you can discern from our pictures. So, it is extremely fragile but holding up well.  Remember, this is a rare object d’art but also it is probably the greatest Fascist  item ever to surface on the net. It should really be in a museum, maybe in Rome, Georgia!

Italian Fascist Bronze Shield (Item I-FAS 4-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is a shield that hung on a wall probably of a Fascist meeting hall. This is very heavy and measures about 18 x 13 inches. We believe it was an important insignia for an American-Italian group in New York City or thereabouts. It was foundry made in Brooklyn, New York, and so marked. The design was by A. XIV Circolo M. Morganti.  There is also a signature engraved on it that reads Mario Scama (the artist?). The motto at the top of the shield is Oredere, Obbedire, Combattere (Order, Obedience, and Combative) with large Roman fasces in the center in high relief.  This is a very dramatic looking shield that does not lack for boldness. It probably was used by a Black shirt group in NY before the Leftist Roosevelt Administration decided to throw all the Patriotic citizens who loved America but showed respect for their Homeland into concentration camps along with Germans and Japanese who were jailed by the thousands between 1935 and 1939. Congress proded on by Roosevelt passed four neutrality Acts which began the process of the internments of the Italians as well as Germans and Japanese to follow. In 1939 and 1940 prior to any entrance of the US in the European conflict, the Roosevelt Administration and the cowed Congress passed and invoked legislation which significantly removed the rights of Italian Americans of Italian extraction as well as alien Italians. Those people not incarcerated immediately lost their jobs and could not find employment because of their enemy alien status. Italians could not believe the country they loved so much would do this to them. There were several suicides. It puts one in mind of what the future might hold for persons today who might be considered ‘potential terrorists’ under the governments manufactured perception of the word simply by criticizing government excesses. This could get an otherwise good Patriotic citizen incarcerated just as the innocent Italians, Germans and Japanese were prior to WWII.  A black flag operation by the CIA or other A.B.C. agents could make history repeat itself. If you think that our American Government is not capable or willing to implement such an operation for their New World Order agenda then I have this nice bridge in Brooklyn that I’d like to sell to you. The shield is considered a relic of the Fascist dream and a great piece of one of the darker chapters of American history as well.

Beautiful Commemorative Medallion (Non-Portable Award) (Item IFAS 4-11 & WILHELM 9-12)

DESCRIPTION: This beautiful gilded bronze medallion was presented to Italian and German Diplomatic Officials to commemorate the Triple Alliance (May 20, 1882 ) of Italy with Germany and Austria-Hungary and in consolidating the pact. King Umberto 1 of Italy made repeated visits to Berlin and Vienna. There was a great friendship struck between the Italian King and the German Emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II. King Umberto was predisposed toward authoritarian and Imperialist policies and this found him in disfavor with Anarchist, Communist and Zionist groups, eventually he was assassinated by silk weaver Gretano Bresci who was an anarchist criminal. Arrested and after serving less than a year of his life sentence he was found “very dead” in his cell under extremely suspicious circumstances. How strange! Now, as to the medallion, the obverse has a fine depiction of the German Kaiser although he looks just a little bit “Italian.” around the edges it says Guglielmo II Imperatore Di Germania (Wilhelm (Guglielmo) Emperor or of Germany; on the reverse is as best we can make out (12 Oct 1888) (MDCCCLXXX VIII) and it mentions in the words “A Momoriam from Umberto 1 to the great friend and ally from the capital of Italy to Wilhelm II Emperor of Germany”. The medallion measures 2 inches in diameter. It is signed by the artist on the obverse under the portrait.

“Me Ne Frego” Mussolini’s Saying Ashtray (Item IFAS 4-12)

DESCRIPTION: Here is  a neat little ashtray five inches in diameter showing a depiction of Benito Mussolini with the words of his often used phrase ‘”Me Ne Frego”’ – ‘I don’t give a damn!’ He usually said this in speeches where he spoke of the personal bravery of himself and his Fascist followers.  After a time it became the most important motto of the Blackshirts who feared nothing and marched to the heroic strains of Giovinezza (Springtime of Youth). That beautiful melodic song became the unofficial national anthem of Italy between 1924 and 1943. A powerful song and a powerful statement on this colorful little ashtray.

Original Photograph of Benito Mussolini (Item IFAS 4-13; PERS 4-23)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a picture of Il Duce in traditional pose as he stands with Italian and German officers. The photograph has the ragged edges of a period snapshot, not the finished edges of one intended for publication. The photograph was recently released from the archives of the former murderous forerunner of the Russian secret police, the KGB. You can see a stamp of the release on the back along with the scribble of the releasing agent. It’s 4 x 3 inches in size; again, it’s absolutely original!

What is this? (Item IFAS 4-13a)

DESCRIPTION: Germania International solicits your help to identify a cast-iron plate that has 16 skulls around its edges. Maybe one of the experts out there can help us identify this piece. The dealer it was bought from mentoned that it was Italian. That’s all the dealer would say or possibly knew. All along the edge above the skulls is a continuous ring with various titles bearing the names of countries and numerals that spell out dates??? In the center is a sun symbol with rays emitting from it. The piece measures 7 1/2 inches in diameter. We do not own it, but are trying to research it for the owner. By the way, the skulls seems to be from war casualties as each one has a different war wound some with bullet entries, some with gaping skull injuries with a goodly percentage of the bone structure blown away. No wording or signature is present. This is a very exotic item and obviously quite rare.

Massive Ring Inspired by Benito Mussolini (Item IFAS 4-14)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a great Fascist ring that was made or finished in the workshop of Franz Schnell in Halle an der Saale, Germany. Schnell was well known for not only producing the greatest silver jewelry in the era of the Third Reich, but he designed many of them, as well. Click here to read about this amazing jeweler of F.S. and Sohn in Halle, and also how we came to accumulate many pieces of his shop inventory at a German militaria show years ago in Stuttgart. Hermann Göring, Hermann Fegelein, Heinrich Himmler all made use of Schnell’s great proclivity for the jeweler’s art to have special jewelry done to their specifications for personal use and as gift items. We do not know the origin of this particular ring. We do not know if it was a piece of jewelry that Schnell designed or if it was to be a gift from some Nazi official to a Fascist leader. We do know it’s a very beautiful design with the Fascist “Aquila” (eagle) on one side of the ring shank and the Fasces of Rome (the bundled axe) on the other; and on the top of a beautiful jewel (mine-cut stone) is the particular style of ‘M’ as designed and used by Benito Mussolini, himself. We make no claim that Benito Mussolini was the owner or recipient of this ring. It probably was, as we have said, a gift. The stone is so far unidentified, but could be a large sapphire with precision jeweler cutting; the cutting and shaping is a spectacular use: fine rose-cut piece throughout. The ring is in silver (Schnell’s specialty) and then heavily gold plated. It is a BIG ring, big in proportion and big in size–11 ½. This is absolutely unique.

Plaque with a Saying by Benito Mussolini (Item IFAS 4-15)

DESCRIPTION: Il Duce once said: “The book and the rifle make the perfect Fascist” “LIBRO E MOSCHETTO--FASCISTA PERFETTO” This saying is shown on the bronze plaque bearing the likeness of Mussolini and the Fascist eagle sitting on the open book with a Carcano rifle evident. There is a signature along the edge: “F. Ciannone.” The plaque owned by a collector was taken to a carpenter who mounted it on a shield-shaped wooden plaque measuring 10 inches x 7 inches. The bronze plaque is 5 ½ inches in diameter. This is a very nice memento of a man whose words, existence, and agenda were many years too early for the times—a man entirely much too great for that era. We need another like him now! Avanti!
