SOMALIA ITALIANA MANZONI 6 BESA USED FINE scarce
Country: SOMALIA
Condition: MANZONI 6 BESA USED FINE
Description: SOMALIA ITALIANA MANZONI 6 BESA USED FINE scarce - Sassone Catalogue 55, 50 Euros ** Remaindered stocks of Italian definitives were used for overprinted stamps of the Colonies. Typically such stamps originated from sheets that had not passed the quality check for use in Italy because of poor centering and other inconsistencies. Colonial definitive stamps with overprints are normally poorly centered or at best Fine. Very Fine centering is the exception and commands a premium as reflected in all Italian catalogues. To expect Very Fine centering for most Colonial issues is rather naïve. _______________________________________________ WE SHIP WORLDWIDE When possible we will combine multiple purchases into one shipment to save you money on postage SHIPPING & HANDLING: ALWAYS CONTACT US BEFORE MAKING YOUR PAYMENT TO CONFIRM CORRECT AMOUNT FOR SHIPPING & HANDLING PAYMENT PAYPAL accepted. _________________________________________________ RETURN POLICY: if an item is not as described you may return it within 7 days.

GALILEO GALILEI 2014 1 value MINT NEVER HINGED
Country: ITALY
Condition: GALILEO GALILEI 2014 1 value MINT NEVER HINGED
Description: The stamp depicts ARISTODEMO COSTOLI'S 1851 STATUE OF GALILEO AT FLORENCE'S UFFIZI GALLERY. --- ~~~~ --- The son of a prominent musician, Galileo became a virtuoso of several musical instruments. He is most famous as a great astronomer, mathematician, scientist, physicist and engineer. His championing of heliocentrism was not welcomed by the Church. The Inquisition suspected him of heresy and sentenced Galileo to life imprisonment, then changed to house arrest after he moderated his views. According to oral history, after recanting his theory that the Earth moved around the Sun, Galileo allegedly muttered the unequivocal phrase “And yet it moves”. In 1992, Pope John Paul II expressed regret for how the Galileo affair was handled, and issued a declaration acknowledging the errors committed by the Catholic Church tribunal that judged the scientific positions of Galileo Galilei, as the result of a study conducted by the Pontifical Council for Culture.

Condition: 2014 MARTINO MARTINI 1 value MINT NEVER HINGED
Description: 8 March 2014 € 0.85 saluting the fourth centenary of the birth of Martino Martini. The stamp shows in the foreground the detail of a painting dating from the seventeenth century, depicting Father Martino Martini, author of the first modern atlas of China Sinesis Novus Atlas, published in 1655 in Amsterdam, from which a map is shown in the background, both works are preserved at the Buonconsiglio Castle in Trento. Martini was born in Trento and became a Jesuit missionary. He was sent to China where he researched local history and cultivated a great interest in cartography. In modern times Martini is acclaimed as the father of Chinese geographical science. Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Professor Ma Yong had this to say about him: “Martini was the first to study the history and geography of China with rigorous scientific objectivity; the extent of his knowledge of the Chinese culture, the accuracy of his investigations, the depth of his understanding of things Chinese are examples for the modern sinologists”.

2014 BRAMANTE PAINTING 1 value MINT NEVER HINGED
Country: ITALY
Condition: 2014 BRAMANTE PAINTING 1 value MINT NEVER HINGED
Description: 22 March 2014 € 0.70 stamp commemorating the fifth centenary of the death of Donato Bramante. The stamp depicts a detail from the painting “Christ at the Column” by Bramante (1480-1490 circa), commissioned by the Abbey of Chiaravalle near Milan. The few surviving Bramante paintings were created in Lombardy. Bramante soon became one of the most important architects of the Renaissance. This eclipsed his career as a painter. He is best known for his architectural work for the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. As a true Renaissance man, Bramante wrote poems and composed music, he also cultivated a friendship with Leonardo and other luminaries of his age. However, his rapport with Michelangelo was described by Vasari as strained.
