"il marito della cultura" = The husband of Culture...written in cursive....but I cannot find a picture of your guy.
I cannot read the other side of the coin. Could you take a straight down shot of it?
Thank You Molly ..I will Add another Picture
I have seen several awards and medals which state "al merito della cultura" "to the merit of culture" as an award given to those who have been a positive influence for their people and/or culture or for the public image of their people and/or culture.
Given the top smaller text looks like "tivista d'arte a di attualità" which, according to Google Translate, means "top-of-the-line artiste", it seems likely that this is a medal awarded to an artist who has created something or done something which has positively promoted or brought positive attention to their country or culture.
That is funny...merit, not husband :0 close! (The guy looks a bit Greek/Hipster)
...either way, I am glad YOU could read and translate the other side of the medal, but I am just curious to be able to look at it myself. For instance, the middle portion looks like, maybe March 1st? And what is that symbol? I guess I am really curious if seeing it in it's entirety will help me figure out exactly what I am looking at.
Yeah, I find many languages have words and even entire phrases which are like, not just Italian.
Change just one letter/character and it can drastically change the meaning.
merito = merit
marito = husband
merita = deserves
morite = dead
Thanks for the Help Michael and Molly
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
The middle text "mar gut lone"? doesn't translate very well to English, I believe I have misunderstood the spelling, and I've no idea what the symbol represents either.
