On July 13th, 1814 the Carabinieri, Italy’s national military police, was created in Turin by King Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia (Victor Emmanuel I of Savoy) with the aim of providing the Kingdom of Sardinia with a police corps. When the Carabinieri force was first born, it counted 800 men who distinguished themselves for good behavior, distributed across 113 stations. This past week, 200 years after its foundation, the Carabinieri force was celebrated throughout Italy’s 8,093 municipalities thankful for their service.
