This dramatic painting, one of a total of four in our possession, is a part of a larger cycle dedicated to the history of Carabinieri troops during the Mussolini era (1922-1945). This group was recently acquired by our gallery in the USA.

The Carabinieri is a shorter and more common name for Arma dei Carabinieri. Historically, a Carabiniero was a cavalry soldier armed with carabine. Their motto is "Nei Secoli Fedeli" ("Faithful for Centuries"). Since their foundation by King Vittorio Emmanuele I of Sardinia Carabinieri fought in every conflict Italy was involved in, having suffered heavy losses and been awarded many decorations for their bravery.

The author of this painting and of the whole "Mussolini's Carabinieri"-Cycle Clemente Tafuri (1903 Salerno - 1971 Genova-Pegli) was the greatest chronicler of the Carabinieri. Among his countless rewards two can be mentioned, which he received from his military friends: in 1951 - Medaglia d'oro artistico dell'Arma dei Carabinieri (Comando di Salerno)" and in 1953 - "Targa d'argento del Comando Generale Carabinieri di Roma".

The artist studied at Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples. Already in 1924 he received his first official commission. Further public commissions, academic awards, etc. followed. The portrait of Prince of Savoy was one of the most significant commissions.
Already at young age Tafuri was considered one of the major Italian figure painters working in traditions of "Ottocento" (19th century).
