The Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity (Stella della solidarietà italiana) was founded as national order by the first President of the Italian Republic, Enrico De Nicola, in 1947, to recognise civilian and military expatriates or foreigners who made an outstanding contribution to the reconstruction of Italy after World War II.
The insignia, modified in 2001, bears the inscription Solidarietà Italiana encircling a depiction of the Good Samaritan.
The three degrees with corresponding ribbons are as follows (with numbers to December 2006):
The order is bestowed by decree of the President of the Republic, head of the order, on the recommendation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs. In 2011, the order was reformed as the Order of the Star of Italy by the 11th President, Giorgio Napolitano. The emphasis of the reformed award has shifted from post-war reconstruction to the preservation and promotion of national prestige abroad, promoting friendly relations and co-operation with other countries and ties with Italy.
