Italy: Victory Arch in Genoa

On Tuesday I got three postcards: one from Italy and two from Germany.

The card from Italy shows the Victory Arch in Genoa. The Victory Arch was inaugurated in 1931. It was built to remember the townsmen of Genoa who died during World War I.

During World War I was Genoa an important logistic port of Italy and between 30000 and 80000 townsmen of Genoa fought on the battlefront.


Stamps:
Tourism (from set of four) (issued 28-06-1982)
Centenary of World War I (from set of four) (issued 24-05-2015)


Thank You very much Irene!
