CARABINIERI POLICE ARMED FORCE MINIATURE SHEET MINT NEVER HINGED
Country: ITALY
Condition: CARABINIERI POLICE ARMED FORCE MINIATURE SHEET MINT NEVER HINGED
Description: 16 July 2014 -- Miniature sheet with 4 € 0.70 stamps -- The police armed force popularly known as the Carabinieri was established in 1814 by Victor Emmanuel I, King of Sardinia, as the Napoleonic era came to an end. The Carabinieri name comes from the weapon that every Carabiniere had -- the rifle (“carabina” in Italian). The colours of the plume (the scarlet and blue) were chosen on 25 June 1833 by King Charles Albert , whose life was later saved by the Carabinieri during the calamitous Battle of Pastrengo (30 April 1848).The Carabinieri played an exceedingly important role in the history of Italy, from the days leading to Italy’s unification, to the wars of Independence, to the tormented times of two world wars and most remarkably their loyalty to the nation during the demise of the fascist regime. The Carabinieri uniforms are very impressive: the basic uniform is in dark blue with silver braid around the collar and cuffs, edges trimmed in scarlet and epaulettes in silver. The mounted division had white fringes, and the infantry had light blue. Their headgear was a distinctive hat with two points. They still use a version of the historic uniform today for ceremonies. The four commemorative stamps (from top to bottom clockwise) capture the highlights and symbols of the Carabinieri’s history and significance: a detail of the bronze statue of the national monument to the policeman, designed by sculptor Edoardo Rubino and unvelied on 22 October 1933 at the Royal Gardens of Turin; the main facade of the Barracks “Bergia” in Turin, designed by Bernardo Antonio Vittone in 1737; the great frieze called “Patrol Police in the storm” created by the Florentine sculptor Antonio Berti in 1973; and the superb logo created for the bicentennial of the institution of the Carabinieri with the distinctive frieze consisting of a grenade, which shows the monogram RI topped by a flame, a scroll with their motto “EVER FAITHFUL THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES” and the flag flanked by the dates 1814 2014.To complete the miniature sheet, at left, is the 1872 painting “Mounted Carabinieri” by Giovanni Brunori.
