This article hasn't referement about the role of women in italian army. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:23, 12 November 2007 (UTC)


The article is unclear of the role of females in the Italian military. It only gives the age ranges for males but it appears to army at least accepts females. The positions of the other branches is unclear Nil Einne 12:14, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Military of Italy insigna.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Military of Italy insigna.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

  • Various moves including Military of ItalyArmed forces of Italy listed at Wikipedia:Requested moves#6 February 2009Over redirect: "Armed forces" means the land army, air force and navy of a country, while "Military", while meaning the same thing, can also refer to just the land army, and thus is ambigious. Per Pervious lengthy discussions on MilHist talk page "Armed forces" is preferable to "Military" in names like this" — Pattont/c 19:38, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment. Discussion at MilHist is here, here, and here, although there may be more. (talk) 15:48, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose "Military" is more concise and, quite frankly, more common. Not by much, but still more common. But in part your right. But the reason is simple. "Armed forces" has come into use more recently, when naval and air forces played a much more important role. Over the thousands of years of recorded military history (what? since biblical times?), only recently (the last 500) has naval power really meant so much, and only the last 75 has air power meant so much. And even when naval power came into force, it was not under a unified command with the army, but was often under a separate command structure (hence, the navy had its own ground forces, the marines.)
