Italy 2010 Magnetic Stamp

Magnet picking up stamp

Post Italiane issued of a stamp in the “Made in Italy” series, dedicated to Federacciai, on the centenary of the inauguration of the complete continuous iron and steel casting plant in Bagnoli, the first in Italy.

The stamp shows the Federacciai logo with the name standing out at the top on a grey background. At the bottom, a series of geometric and chiaroscuro effects appear to create a block of steel.

The words “MADE IN ITALY”, “ITALIA”, and the denomination “€ 3,30” complete the stamp

The stamp is printed with special metallic ink and can be picked up with a magnet.
