Italian Language Day Joint stamp issue - Vatican City, San Marino and Italy  

«Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a dark forest, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.». This tercet is perhaps the most famous by poet Dante Alighieri and will serve as the introduction for the Italian Language Day to be celebrated on 21 October at the International Festival of Philately in Rome. There will be a joint stamp issue of Vatican City, San Marino and Italy on the theme of Dante’s Divine Comedy.
