Federazione Italiana Cuochi "diploma di merito"

I recently dined in an Italian Restaurant and noticed This ' Diploma Di Merito' sitting proud in the restaurant. Can you please explain to me what significance this holds for the chef and or property when they get this Award/Diploma. Is there some prestiege surrounding this diploma as the restaurant I dine at was one of the most respected in Brisbane, Australia. There must be some form of distinction to even be awarded this? I was reading a bio of a chef working in America and they made a big song and dance about this fact.
