Description

This first day cover's hand-painted cachet by Nino Masiello da Ercole echoes the 2011 Italy commemorative stamp designed by Gaetano Ieluzzo. The cachet reproduces the 1965 500-lire Italy Dante stamp, the subject of which is the Naples Bust of the poet. To the left is the Italian cancellation of November 30, 2007, showing Dante in profile, and to the right is the Italian cancellation of October 23, 2009, showing a representation of Dante's hell. Below the cachet is "Pezzo unico" (unique item) and the artist's signature "Nino Masiello 2011". In the upper left corner of the envelope is the artist's logo.
