#829 Italy 14/01/08

Italy 140108This nice cover from Italy was sent by Alfredo, thank you! It was posted in Turin on January 8 and arrived on January 10, 2014.

The stamp is part of the mini-sheet, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Expedition of the Thousand in 1860. The sheet was issued on May 5, 2010. The stamp itself commemorates the Battle of Calatafimi.

Interestingly the stamp was already cancelled with a special Christmas postmark on December 16, 2013.
