    The Prima Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte Decorativa Moderna (English: First International Exposition of Modern Decorative Arts), held in Turin, Italy in 1902 (opened 10 May), was a world arts exhibition that was important in spreading the popularity of Art Nouveau design, especially to Italy. Its aim was explicitly modern: "Only original products that show a decisive tendency toward aesthetic renewal of form will be admitted. Neither mere imitations of past styles nor industrial products not inspired by an artistic sense will be accepted."
    This interesting little medal belonged to:
    Francisco Emilio Federico Dato-Tessitore
    BIRTH 17 Feb 1880
    Sicilia, Italy
    DEATH 21 Jul 1974 (aged 94)
    Buenos Aires, Argentina

    He married a daughter of Belisario Juan Montero Cisterna Argentine Ambassador to Belgium 1880s. I have other items posted regarding this family. I understand that this medal was a honorary medal purchased just for attending the event
