Italian Stamps

Italian Stamps

One of philately’s most interesting areas! Italian stamps begin with those issued by nine different states during the 1850’s. The unified Kingdom of Italy was created on 17 March 1861 and her first stamps, a set of 4 different values were issued during 1862. In 1863 the first truly sophisticated stamps were issued, originally printed by De La Rue then finally by the Government printing works at Turin. Perhaps rather traditional designs dominated the 19th Century but Italian artistic flair soon becomes evident with (arguably) the 1911 Jubilee of the Kingdom of Italy set. A fascination with Air Post services also give us many special stamps including the unusual 1933 Balbo Transatlantic Mass Formation Flight by Flying Boats issue which was sold in strips of three (a registered air express label + ordinary postage stamp + an air mail stamp) with the initials of each of the twenty pilots overprinted once each on a sheet containing twenty of those otherwise identical strips!

Italian Stamps and Topical Collecting

Of all stamp issuing countries Italian stamps have perhaps the deepest pool of artistic endeavour to offer us! Great art and great thinkers have given the stamps of Italy the fullest spectrum of human endeavour; perhaps light on flora and fauna designs Italy does give us characters from Augustus to Mussolini, Leonardo da Vinci to Michelangelo; and the history of modern Europe in miniature from the early Zeppelin flights to the turmoil of war.
