Text in original Preserved Tanks In Italy publication:

In the 1950’s this tank was set up as a monument inside an Army barracks in Vercelli. At that time it was missing its turret and this configuration may indicate it had been used as a turretless tractor by the Germans. After that it was moved to the Caserma Cadorna in Legnano (about 5km south of Solbiate Olona). There it was displayed with a fake turret made of sheet metal. It was restored by OTO Melara some years ago and now has a better steel replica turret. Other parts are also not original, including the lifting jack, antenna, glacis lights and some roadwheels. (Source: M. Foti).
When in Legnano it was displayed on a stone and concrete plinth and was painted overall in a brown and sand camouflage scheme. At that time it carried the registration number “RE 4053” painted on its nose.
