Italian stamps for 2021 pt 2

Written by catpaw

October 06, 2021

All the Italian stamps for 2021 have been broken into a 2 part article. You can find issues from Jan to June here: Italy 2021. Because there are so many stamps, postcards, philately cards, info brochures etc plus details about each stamp, the page ran the risk of loading slowly Easy solution, break the year in half. 

Note:   Folders are A4 format folders with 3 doors, containing postcard, stamp(s), FDC(s), maxis (when issued). They are similar to presentation packs.
Illustrative bulletins are folders with special commemorative signed article(s), anti-counterfeiting sticker and numbered.

Paolo Bocci – ParadissoThe passing of the baton in which a young man, with his head surrounded by laurel leaves, iconography that has always been representative of the poet Dante Alighieri, rejoices in an acrobatic jump holding a pen in one hand, surrounded by letters and sheets of paper.” 
Francesco Di Pietro – Purgatory “depicts the figure of a man, whose features recall the poet Dante Alighieri, who stands out on the platform of a subway station; behind him restless figures seem hypnotized by bright screens, around float some books.”
Corrado Veneziano – Inferno from Veneziano’s painting “L’Inferno, evocando Buffalmacco”.
