Awarded in the single degree of Knight, a small annuity was granted in favour of those recipients who did not enjoy an income above their tax allowance, payable to the widow or minor children on death. The allowance was also granted to those that fought in the former Austro-Hungarian armed forces who became Italian citizens after annexation.
Cavaliere dell'Ordine di Vittorio Veneto
The order was bestowed by decree of the President of the Republic, its head, on the recommendation of the Minister of Defence. A Lieutenant General chaired the council, which screened applications made by eligible parties to the municipality of residence. However, with the death of the last surviving Knights of Vittorio Veneto in 2008, the order fell into abeyance and, in 2010, it was formally wound-up by repeal of the original legislation.
