Hashi Omar Hassan received 3.181 million euros in a ruling from the Perugia appeals court.
In October 2016 a Perugia court reversed the conviction of Hassan for the 1994 murder of Alpi and Hrovatin in the Somali capital.
Prosecutor Dario Razzi told the court Hassan "did not commit" the crime he served more than 16 years in jail for.
