cover from Italy

Today I got not only two postcards but also three covers including one from Italy.

Stamp:
La Grande Guerra. La Liberazione. Cento gemme della filatelia italiana (issued 15-10-2015)


Inside were two maxicards and one souvenir sheet.
The first maxicard bears the same stamp as the cover. "La Grande Guerra. La Liberazione. Cento gemme della filatelia italiana" was a philatelic exhibition at the Quirinal Palace in Rome, one of the official residences of the President of Italy, in October 2015. It showed philatelic exhibits about the centenary of World War I, the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and other important moments in the Italian history.


The second maxicard is about the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of Florence as capital of Italy (issued 19-06-2015). Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy between 1865 and 1871. I also got the mint souvenir sheet, which you can see here.


Thank You very much Giuseppe!
