The Italian Army carried on the collar ,collar patches called Mostrina , and on these ,five pointed metallic stars .the famous stellete, all ranks carried the stars . they signified pertenence to the Armed Force. Apart , Officers ranks were marked by five pointed stars also .the stars were carried during ww1 on the cuffs .

These stars are exactly the same of my father's WW2 ones. I don't know if during WW1 they were made in the same way, i.e. with screws. The stars I had in the 80's did not have the screws any more.

Both officials and troop use stars, these were for troop.
