Cancellation - Italy (Roma) - 1990 May 12
This circular cancellation features a portrait of Dante—based on the Naples Bust—with a globe and open book. The design echoes the 1990 Italian postage stamp issued to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Società Dante Alighieri. Around the central design are "ROMA FILATELICO" (Rome Philatelic) and "CENTENARIO SOCIETÀ DANTE ALIGHIERI" (Società Dante Alighieri centenary).
