#22 Cover from Italy

My third cover from my dear Italian friend, Giovanni Colombo. Sorry for my late post as I was on long vacation!

The two same rectangle stamps used are to commemorate the day Rome, the capital city of Italy, was founded. It is believed that Rome was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus on April 21st, 753 BC. So now the city is already 2764 years old!

Thank you very much Giovanni!


#9 Cover from Italy

Another surprise as I checked my mailbox today, another cover from Giovanni also!

The stamps used show Emilio Sargari, one of the most famous and influential adventure novel writers in the world. Interestingly, I found that there’s a series of his adventure novels that were written using the background of East Malaysia! The series are known as ‘Tigers of Malaysia’ , and there are five novels under this series that have been translated into English. Perhaps I shall spend some time of my summer holidays to get these novels and read them!  Grazie mille Giovanni!

#8 Cover from Italy

I was surprised to find a nice cover from Italy in the mailbox today. It’s from Giovanni!

The stamps on the cover mark 50th anniversary of the first human being to journey into outer space, Yuri Gagarin. Thank you very much Giovanni!
