Cover from Italy no. 16
Another fantastic cover received from Giovanni, with an embossed 0.85 euro stamp (and three new 0.20 euro definitives) commemorating the Men's Volleyball World Championship held in Italy from 25 September to 10 October 2010. The stamp, issued on 24 September 2010, has an old-fashioned feel, it is engraved, and I find it very interesting.
One of the venues of the tournament was Milan where the special cancellation on the cover was used on 24 September. And the winner was Brazil (the Czechs ranked 10th in the final standing). Grazie, Giovanni!
