Vintage Travel Posters ~ #1 In A Series
One of my blog friends, Nina, recently traveled to Italy, France and Scotland, and her colorful posts from Rome and Bologna inspired me to blog a series of old Italian travel posters this month.
Both posters are color lithographs, printed in 1920 and sponsored by the Italian Tourist Board, officially know as Ente Nazionale perle Industrie Turistiche. The one above was created by Vittorio Grassi. Both posters were created to promote travel to Venice and feature the iconic Venetian canals and gondolas.
