Cover from Italy no. 5

Another treat from Italy, from Giovanni! The centenary of the Alfa Romeo company is commemorated by these two elegant stamps with a coupon. The left-hand stamp shows Alfa Romeo 24 HP from 1910 and the right-hand stamp the brand new Alfa Romeo Giulietta from 2010. The letter was sent from the post office in Milano Isola, with the first day cancellation (20 March 2010).

The stamps have been issued as part of a highly collectable "Made in Italy" series, begun in 2004 with Italian brand-shoes. More info here.

Grazie, Giovanni, come sempre:-)
