Vintage Travel Posters ~ #3 In A Series
Here are two more Italian travel posters, both lithographs created in 1920 for the Italian Tourist Board. The poster above shows Naples, with Mt. Vesuvius in the background and a glimpse of the Bay of Naples, as seen from the terrace of a fortress. The artist is unknown.
The poster below was created by Vittorio Grassi, whose posters we've noted before. This lithograph was printed in Rome and shows the countryside of Assisi, as seen through a tower window.
