Type

Coverage

Date Issued

Description

This set of cinderella stamps was issued by the Federazione italiana contro la tubercolosi e Consorzi provinciali antitubercolari (Italian Federation Against Tuberculosis and Provincial Antituberculosis Consortium) for the "XXVIII CAMPAGNA NAZIONALE ANTITUBERCOLARE" (28th National Antituberculosis Campaign) in 1965. Funds raised by the sale of the stamps went toward prevention campaigns and aid for the sick.

The ten stamps each have a portrait of Dante by a different artist: Giotto, Andrea del Castagno, Domenico di Michelino, Luca Signorelli, Raphael, Domenico Petarlini (here credited as "D. Perterlin"), Vittorio Guaccimanni, and Adolfo de Carolis. One portrait is an anonymous miniature from a fifteenth-century manuscript (MS Riccardiano 1040) now in the Biblioteca Riccardiana in Florence, Italy; another is the anonymous Naples Bust.

The series was printed by Panetto & Petrelli of Spoleto, Italy, and issued in two formats: a booklet containing one set of stamps and a sheet repeating the set four times.
Denomination: 10 lire (10 ITL)
