Description

This cover was issued in conjunction with the Convegno commerciale B.F.N. (National Philatelic Bourse Commercial Convention) held in Milan from October 31 to November 2, 1965. Printed on the left side of the cover is a facsimile of the 15-centesimi Dante stamp issued by Italy in 1921. A separately printed sheet is affixed to the envelope; this sheet reproduces in color all three stamps from the 1921 Dante issue (designed by Giuseppe Cellini and engraved by G. Priola and C. Grimaldi). The sheet has text as follows: at the top: "7o CENTENARIO NASCITA / DANTE ALIGHIERI" (7th centenary [of the] birth [of] Dante Alighieri); and at the bottom: "CONVEGNO COMMERCIALE B.F.N. / MILANO - 31 OTT. - 1-2 NOVEMBRE 1965" (National Philatelic Bourse Commercial Convention, Milan, October 31 - November 1-2, 1965). On the right side of the envelope are pre-printed lines for an address and stamp location.
