The Mozzetta is a knife that has the end of the blade without tip, as if it were “mozza” (blunt). The purpose was to obtain a suitable knife to be use only for cutting, that can be carried more freely than a pointed knife, in a period in which the laws had become increasingly restrictive. Therefore these knives are referred to as "permitted by the law". The reference is to Giolitti Law of 1908, which allowed to carry freely knives with blades up to 10 cm in length only on condition that this was blunt.
On the blades of my Mozzette sometimes is printed PERMITTED BY THE LAW Regulations P.S. No. 62/81. The reference is to Article 81 of the only text of public safety laws. Regulation no longer implemented as a result of certain judgments of the Supreme Court, as of today to carry any knife, which is not double edge or switchblade, is subject to a justified reason.
