Italy

The Republic of Italy is situated in southern Europe.  Many  islands including Sardinia and Sicily belong to Italy.  The “leg” of Italy is surrounded by water, the Ligurian Sea in the northwest, the Tyrrhenian Sea in the south west, the Ionian Sea in the south and the Adriatic Sea in the east.  In the north it has land borders with France in the west, Switzerland and Austria in the north and Slovenia in the east.  Italy has a very rich history and much of the culture in western Europe stems from Italy in the form of architecture, artists, poets, etc.  The capital of Italy, Rome was for centuries the political centre of European civilisation and also the capital of the Roman Empire.  The Vatican City with the Pope at its helm as head of the Catholic Church, it situated within the borders of Rome.

Various states issued stamps in the 1850’s, but the stamps produced in 1861 with the embossed head of  Victor Emmanuel III are considered to be the first stamps of Italy.  Initially stamps were produced by French and British printers, but in 1879 stamps appeared which had been designed, engraved and printed in Italy.  In 1917, the world’s first official airmail stamps were issued.
