The award was founded as a national order of chivalry in 1923 by King Vittorio Emanuele III of Italy; it is presented to those ‘who have been singularly meritorious’ in agriculture, industry and commerce, crafts, lending and insurance.

Michele said: “I am so proud to be awarded a medal in recognition of my work at Aermec. It is a great achievement and also recognises the support and commitment that Aermec has offered throughout my career. I hope this is an inspiration for others.”
