This postage stamp issued by Poste Italiane to celebrate the first Italian Paragliding World Championships has been presented today, at the Sala degli Stemmi, in the Feltre Town Hall.
Promoted by the Organizing Committee and realized through the involvement of the Italian Economic Development Ministry, this post stamp will make the World Championships memorable not only for paragliding fans but also for Philately enthusiasts of the entire planet. This 95c Postage Stamp will be released by Poste Italiane starting on June 1. It depicts a flying athlete, designed by Bozzettista Fabio Abbati and inspired by a photograph taken by paraglider pilot and photographer Andrea Schenal.
On the stamp’s release day, the Philatelic Office of the Feltre Post Office will use the ad-hoc cancellation especially made by Filatelia Poste Italiane.
