The Medal of Merit for Culture and Art (Italian: Medaglia ai Benemeriti della cultura e dell'arte) and (Latin: Medal est per Meritum unius culturae et artis) is an Italian medal established on 16 November 1950. The order has three classes, gold, silver and bronze, and may be awarded to men and women for contributions to Italian art, literature or culture.

The medal is personally conferred by the President of Italy on the Festa della Repubblica, Italy's National Day celebrated each 2 June.

The medal is awarded by presidential decree based on the advice of an evaluation committee made up of representatives of Italian academies and chaired by the head of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
