Cover from Italy no. 15
Giovanni has just sent me this fantastic cover with a souvenir sheet showing the Basilica Santa Maria di Collemaggio in the city of L'Aquila, capital of the Abruzzi region in central Italy, in April 2009 hit by the destructive earthquake. The basilica is an important example of Romanesque art in Abruzzo. And there is also a special postmark from Florence, commemorating the 2nd Salon of Arts and Restauration, with the head of Michalangelo's David.
Grazie, Giovanni! Yesterday I sent you a special cover; I hope it arrives safely even with this terrible snowing.
