Italian makers trademarks

I happened to stumble upon the Italian State Archive (Archivio centrale della stato) and with some advanced squirreling you can find the archives of The Ministero D'Agricoltura, Industria e Commercio. The ministry was responsible for the trademarks and they have their archive digitalized. The way these are presented varies, but usually it consists of the image and on a separate page a description or notes. Since this determines which trademarks were introduced at what date, it will help us with dating hats. Unless there is something special to note, I'll just post the images by brand and by year.
As some have pointed out, there is a risk of these trademarks getting buried in their respective brands threads. In this thread I'll gather them all for future reference. There are still quite a few more than what has been posted this far.

Cambiaghi (part II)

The company was (rightly) proud of the international awards they won and made a point of mentioning those in their advertising and on their hats. Here 5 grand prix are mentioned, but I could not find trademarks for the situation for 7 grand prix and 9 grand prix, which was mentioned on their hats and in advertising.

Here is a later advertising piece, which mentions the prizes won.

1908 The familiar trademark with the "antica casa" added, necessary due to the founding of the "other Borsalino".

After 1926 there are no more registrations and it was the year Giovanni Battista was ousted from his own company. In the 1940's the other Borsalino renewed some of the trademarks.
