Addressing the CAPTAIN through the realization of the symbolic object that distinguishes them: the BAND.
The band that made with national colors, but had a particularity: 2.on it are reproduced two details of the official score, of "Il Canto degli Italiani" of the Maestro Michele Novaro (played for the first time, on 10 December 1847), who masterfully composing the poetry of Mameli, elevated it and dedicated it to the national anthem in the autumn of 1847, in that climate of patriotic fervor that already foreshadowed the Italian Risorgimento. This peculiarity should make every Captain who will receive it proud and wear it on the playing field.
