CONI SPORTS HONOURS
PRESTIGIOUS HONOURS ANY SPORTS PERSON OR TEAM CAN WIN IN ITALY.
Winner - Regarded as one of the best sportsmen in Italy.
Organisers - CONI - Comitato Olimpico Nazionale
Italiano (Italian National Olympic Committee).
Participates - All Italian and foreign athlets, officials,
coaches and teams that through their sports activities
have honoured Italian Sports.
Award Objective and Structure - Four different honours
are assigned by the CONI, three of which have three different grades. The honours are assigned on the proposal of the 'Commissione Benemerenze Sportive - Sports Merit Commission', established every four years by the CONI and made up of 16 members, in order to assign directly and review proposed nominations for the honours.  However, the President of CONI can directly nominate for any award any person or team (including foreigners) who have promoted distinctively the olympic spirit. The highest honour is the 'Collare d'Oro al Merito Sportivo - Golden Collar for Sports Merit'. It can only be assigned once per person / team and thus in the case that someone merits more than one 'Collare', he will be assigned a 'Diploma d'Onore - Honourary Diploma'. The second honour is the 'Stella al Merito Sportivo - Star for Sports Merit' assigned in three different grades: Gold, Silver and Bronze. The third honour is the 'Palma al Merito Tecnico - Palm for Technical Merit' asigned also in three grades: Gold, Silver and Bronze. The last honour is the 'Medaglia al Valore Atletico - Medal for Athletic Value' which is again assigned in three grades: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
History - A large number of Italian sportsman and teams (and also few foreigners) were bestowed with these honours, some of which are football players, officials, coaches, referees and teams. All players, coaches and teams who won or obtained a good position in the major competitions or won an important award, are generally bestowed with this decoration. As yet we do not have the complete list of all those connected with Italian football who have received one of these honours, as such the list below is incomplete.

Decoration Objective and Structure - The 'Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana' was instituted on the 3 March 1951 by the Italian Parliament, replacing as national orders the 'Supreme Order of the Most Holy Annunciation' (founded in 1362), the 'Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus' (1572) and the 'Order of the Crown of Italy' (1868) as the highest ranking honour and most senior order of the Republic of Italy. It is awarded in five degrees for "merit acquired by the nation" in various fields including those of literature, arts, economy, public service, social, sports, philanthropic and humanitarian activities and also for long and conspicuous service in civilian and military careers: Cavaliere (Knight - 5th class), Ufficiale (Officer - 4th class), Commendatore (Commander - 3rd class), Grande Ufficiale (Grand Officer - 2nd class), Cavaliere di Gran Croce (Knight Grand Cross - 1st class) and Cavaliere di Gran Croce decorato di Gran Cordone (Knight Grand Cross with Grand Cordon - exceptional class). Investiture normally takes place on 2 June ('Festa della Republica', anniversary of the foundation of the Italian Republic) and on 27 December (anniversary of the promulgation of the Italian Constitution). The design of the decoration was changed on the 30 March 2001.

THE DECORATION
Name - Stella d'Oro al Merito Sportivo (Golden Star for Sports Merit).
Established - 20 December 1933.
Material - White 5-pointed Star with gold border and a dark blue roundel in the centre with the five olympic rings and the CONI logo in gold. The Star is sourrounded by a round golden wreath. The medal is hanged by a light blue ribbon with four vertical bands on each side in the olympic colours (Red, Green, Black and Yellow). A golden clip on the ribben has the inscription 'Al Merito Sportivo (For Sports Merit)' embossed on the front. It can be assigned in three grades: Gold, Silver and Bronze. A certificate is also awarded.
Height of Star - circa 6 cm
Eligibility - I, All sports entities still in existance who have uninteruptedly promoted the sports ideals and contributed towards the betterness of sports in Italy for at least 50 years (Gold), 30 years (Silver) or 20 years (Bronze); II, Sports Officials who have served uninteruptedly positively in their sports for 30 years (Gold), 20 years (Silver) and 12 years (Bronze); III, Foreign sports personalities who have contributed towards Italian sports in general; The Gold Star can also be awarded to the Presidents of National Associations and the various CONI Regional and Provincial committees, CONI delegates for the Italian Communities in foreign lands and the members of the CONI National Counsel, all of which must have served for at least 12 consecutive years in their office or a total of at least 16 non consecutive years. The Silver Star can be awarded to the Presidents of National Associations, Sports Entities and the various CONI Regional and Provincial committees and to CONI delegates for the Italian Communities in foreign lands, all of which must have served for at least 8 consecutive years in their office. The Bronze Star can be awarded to the Presidents of the various CONI Provincial committees and CONI delegates for the Italian Communities in foreign lands.
Note - The 'Stella D'Oro' can only be assigned once per person or team for each grade. Except for rare special occasions, the 'Stella d'Oro' is awarded succesively according to the grade when awarded to the same person or team: first Bronze than Silver and finally gold with a period of at least 3 years between bronze and Silver and 6 years between silver and gold.
Annual Quantities - The Gold 'Stella D'Oro' is awarded to a maximum of 100 Sports Officials and 20 teams annualy, the Silver is awarded to a maximum of 200 Sports Officials and 50 teams annualy and the Bronze is awarded to a maximum of 400 Sports Officials and 100 teams annualy.
Exceptional Cases - In 1958, on the initiative of Juventus President Umberto Agnelli, CONI awarded a special 'Stella d'Oro' to Juventus who had just won their tenth Scudetto (Italian football championships) with the right to wear a star symbol on the team's shirt. This idea continued in Italy and was eventually taken over by other foreign National Associations (Turkey in 2000, Germany in 2004, USA & Sweden in 2006, Netherlands & Romania 2007) and National Teams where a star is worn for each World Cup victory (Brazil after 1970, Italy after 1982, Germany after 1990). This system was officially regularised by FIFA in 1998 and by UEFA in 2000. UEFA declared that any National Team who did not won a World Cup but won a European Nations Championship can wear a star to this effect during the final stages of the European Nations Championships (Denmark after 1998, Greece after 2004) and introduced the 'Multiple-Winner Badge' to be worn by the clubs who have won the UEFA Champions (Cup) League more than five times or won it for three consecutive years ( Real Madrid - Spain, Milan - Italy, Liverpool - England, Ajax Amsterdam - Netherlands, Bayern Munich - Germany).

The eleventh part of all Individual International and National Honours
won by Azzurri players and officials throughout the years
Since the Italian National Team is among the very few National Teams who almost won all the major competitions and trophies that football can offer, both World and European, it is logically that the azzurri players and officials who achieved this success are bestowed with the major individual awards and honours. The eleventh page of Individual Honours alos concentrates on the Italian domestic awards, mainly the prestigious national civil and sports decorations presented by the President of the Italian Republic and CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee) - Ordine al Merito della Republic Italiana: Cavaliere di Gran Croce, Grande Ufficiale, Commendatore, Ufficiale, Cavaliere; and Collare d'Oro al Merito Sportivo, Stella d'Oro al Merito Sportivo, Stella d'Argento al Merito Sportivo, Palma al Merito Tecnico, Medaglia d'Oro al Valore Atletico and Medaglia di Bronzo al Valore Atletico.
