Can anyone help me with identifying this uniform? It is supposed to be Italian, before 1906. Thanks.

With the crossed cannon and flaming grenade of his kepi (hat), and the star on his collar- it looks like an Italian artillery uniform.

Thank you, I've attached the back of the photograph as well. Do you have any idea when this would have been taken? The person we think this is would have Benin the US before 1907.

Thanks!

It looks like the photography studio was on Via Bonazzi in Perugia, Italy. From the uniform style probably around the turn of the century, the Italian army changed thier unifroms around 1908 and this uniform is prior to that. You might want to post the photo on one of the uniform collector sites, someone with a better knowledge of Italian period uniforms might be able to help you better.
