This medal was chosen as the 92nd issue of the prestigious Society of Medalists series in 1975. The obverse bears a young couple in passionate embrace. To right, B. LUCCHESI
The reverse bears mother holding baby in loving embrace.
Bruno Lucchessi attempted to make "a positive statement about Life - and the love of life." He showed two stages of love: the young, impetuous youths in passionate embrace, and the serene mother, loving her baby tenderly. In accordance with Lucchesi, the reverse can be seen as the fulfillment of the obverse. It could of course also be interpreted as a tale about the consequences of impetuous, youthful love.
This medal measures 73mm in diameter and was produced by the Medallic Art Company which struck 1,350 pieces in bronze and 185 in silver.
