Coverage

Description

These cinderella stamps were issued around 1908 by or for the Società Dante Alighieri, here printed as "Società nazionale Dante Alighieri". A portrait of Dante appears above a quotation from Purgatorio 6:80: "SOL · PER · LO · DOLCE · SVON · DELLA · SVA · TERRA" (only at the sweet name of his city). The stamps are signed at the bottom as follows: "M DEZZUTTI" and "BELLOSI E CUMINO - TORINO INC.".

Malorzo records an orange issue overprinted with the phrase "Pro vittime terremoto" (For earthquake victims) and "2" over the 1 of the original denomination. The overprinting refers to the earthquake that struck southern Italy on December 28, 1908.
