Identify Lapel Pin in Photo?

Post by mnaccarato »

Hello. I recently was given a photo of my Great-Great Grandfather who grew up in Vizzini, Sicily. I am wondering what the lapel pin he's wearing signifies - does it relate to the military in any way? Any help appreciated.

Hello,
it seems more a civil decoration, but it's very hard to say in this photo. Which was his job? When was he born?

If he was born in 1869 it's very unlikely that he participated in any war. My guess it's that he was awarded a decoration for his work.
