ALBANIA ITALIAN P.Os 1902 - 1908

HISTORY AND PHILATELY 1901-1925: ALBANIA ITALIAN P.Os 1902 - 1908 Italy had Post Offices at Durazzo (Durres, opened in 1902), Giannina (Yanina or Janina, opened in 1902), Scutari (Shkoder, opened in 1901) and Valona (Vlore, opened in 1908) Stamps overprinted "ALBANIA" were issued in 1902 and 1907. Later on, these post offices had stamps specifically issued for them. During World War I, Albania had been overrun by seven different armies. Following a period of anarchy and unrest, and with the help of Italy, the country stabilised itself. At the Peace Conference Italy invoked Article XIII of the Secret Treaty of London (26 April 1915) which made provisions for an “equitable compensation” to Italy in the event of the British colonial dominions being augmented at the expense of Germany and her allies. Additionally articles V, VI, and VII envisaged the possibility of substantial acquisitions of Albanian territory by Italy. Later on, a similar treaty between France and Italy was signed at St. Jean de Maurienne (20 April 1917). Italy’s request for a mandate over Valona (Vlore) and Central Albania was rejected and eventually Italy was allowed to retain the tiny island of Saseno [Sazan]. See other sections [Valona, Durazzo, Saseno, Janina, Scutari, etc]. For the 1939-1943 issues of Albania under Italian rule see the specific section. ********* COPYRIGHT: We own the copyright in this site and in material published on it such as articles, technical profiles, technical information, general information, descriptions and photographs of all items.
