Heebee Post #612 - Umberto Basso - Barletta - Italy

The Affair adores commemoratives in mail art and this one is superb. The 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy. Before 1861, Italy was fragmented into numerous kingdoms and city-states. Mar.17, 2011 (150 years later) was declared a national holiday with schools, offices and other business activities suspended. Here, Umberto celebrates with these handsomely obscured panels of self portraits in an Italian flag colored theme. Nice Fluxus adornment too! I love this card.
It is wonderful to see you here again Umberto. And thank you very much for this fabulous uplifting card. Viva Italia! Basso Art.
