Collezione Fondazione Cariparma
Parma, Italy

This ticket, issued from 1947 to 1961, whose engraving was made by Mazzini Canfarini, Pietro Nicastro and Mario Baiardi, has a yellow box on the front in the center in which all the official inscriptions are inserted: the value in numbers and letters, the signatures of the cashier and the governor, serial numbers and the vermilion mark with the head of Medusa. In the oval on the right, in filigree, you can see the head of Italy with hair intertwined with spikes and fruit. In the oval on the left stands the beautiful profile inspired by one of the three Graces of the painting La Primavera by Sandro Botticelli; the figure, represented in monochrome, turns his gaze to the right and marvelously interprets Italy, adorned with pearls and jewels.
