A special postmark is available for the exhibition Viterbo and Tuscia in the stamps of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta issued on 26 November 2022.
Designed by Giancarlo Federico, it reproduces a detail of the 1 Scudo stamp belonging to the series “Seats of the Order” issued on 5 March 1968, in which the legend “Viterbo 1524” is highlighted.
The postmark is completed by the inscriptions “SOVRANO MILITARE ORDINE DI MALTA” and “POSTE MAGISTRALI”, the legend “IL PATRIMONIO STORICO E ARTISTICO DI VITERBO E DELLA TUSCIA” and “MOSTRA FILATELICA” and the date “26.XI.2022”.
Since the Magistral Post Office counter will be closed to the public on Saturday 26 November 2022, it will be exceptionally allowed to use the postmark for sending mail on Monday 28 November as well.
