29 December 1956, Italy
First Anniversary of Italy to United Nations
design: C. Donati
We are facing a global pandemic – all commercial and cultural gatherings are restricted here in the UK, too. It is heavy and sad to see and hear news from Italy, where a lot of friends of mine and their families live. People from Italy are telling us what to prepare, what to expect, and how people are supporting each other – this reminds me that we are living on one and only Spaceship Earth…
This is one of the early examples of the globe on a stamp – and modern and avant-garde design at that time. If you have 3D glasses with red and cyan color filters – please try.
