VENEZIA GIULIA 1918-9

On 3 November 1918, Trieste was united to Italy. However, the formal annexation of the city and Venezia Giulia became effective only two years later, between November 1920 and January 1921. During the early days, after the liberation, mail was either stamp-less or franked with current stamps of Italy. Eleven days after the 3 November armistice, Trieste’s post offices began to use newly issued stamps created by overprinting Austrian definitive stamps depicting Emperor Karl I (1917-8) or the Habsburg coat of arms (1916-8). The three line overprint “Regno d’Italia – Venezia Giulia – 3. XI. 18” was carried out in Trieste by the Societa’ dei Tipografi printing shop. The year “1918” was expressed in the abbreviated version “18” because the printing shop did not have enough fonts with the figure “1”. By December, no less than 17 denominations had been so overprinted. The face value was expressed in hellers and crowns of the Austrian currency; the fixed rate being: 1 crown consisting of 100 heller was worth 40c. Italian lira. In some quarters the overprints on stamps depicting the Austrian emperor, or his coat of arms, were reminiscent of the old regime. A 10 Crowns coat of arms was overprinted by hand utilizing very few examples found at the post office. It was allegedly produced to please some very important authorities. Attempts were made to overprint typographically the few 10 Crowns stamps left over by the previous administration, but the results were unsatisfactory. The 90 heller coat of arms was also overprinted but not issued. Between December 1918 and January 1919, eleven different denominations of Italian definitive stamps were overprinted “Venezia – Giulia” on two lines by the above mentioned Trieste printing shop. Although the stamps were Italian, their face value was meant to be in Austrian crown and hellers and not in Italian lira and cents. Meanwhile the postal authorities in Rome had approved the overprinting of Italian definitive stamps with face values in the Austrian currency, for use in both the Trieste the Trento regions. The move was criticized by a cross section of the public and by a number of politicians; for a short while the newly overprinted stamps denominated in hellers remained on the shelf. However, when the post offices ran out of stamps, the heller stamps on Italian definitive values were approved for postal use due to the emergency situation. A 5 heller on 5c and a 20 heller on 20c which had been overprinted on three lines “Venezia – Giulia - …Heller” by the Scotti Printing Shop in Rome were issued in Trieste on 20 February 1919. A special delivery 25c Italian Espresso stamp overprinted (in Trieste) “Venezia Giulia” in December 1918 was placed in use in January 1919. A scarce variety with a smaller font is known in used conditions only. Also in December, the Societa’ dei Tipografi overprinted seven different denominations of Italian postage due stamps with the two-line overprint “Venezia – Giulia”. To bring to an end separate issues for Trento and Trieste, Italian definitive stamps overprinted with the denomination expressed in “centesimi di corona” and “corona” (both in lower case) were approved by Rome in December 1918 and issued between January and April 1919. They remained valid in the Trieste and Trento regions for a few months but continued to be used in Dalmatia until February 1921. On 20 April 1919 the post offices in the Trento and Trieste regions began to use Italian stamps. [G.M. 2013 copyright]
