Description

This maximum card was issued by Poste Italiane and features a monochromatic enlarged image of the 2011 Italy postage stamp designed by Gaetano Ieluzzo. The stamp commemorates the "Giornata della filatelia 2011" (Philately Day 2011). In the center of the stamp is a reproduction of the 1965 Italian 500-lire postage stamp showing the Naples Bust of Dante. The background comprises a collage of the following designs: 1.) Lower left: the Italian cancellation of November 30, 2007, showing Dante in profile; 2.) Upper right: the Italian cancellation of October 23, 2009, showing a representation of Dante's hell; and 3.) Lower right: An envelope stamped with three 25-centesimi Italian "Proclamation of the Empire" postage stamps from 1938 designed by Corrado Mezzana. The maximum card's cancellation has the same design as the stamp.
