LOMBARDY & VENETIA

The stamps of Lombardy-Venetia (up to 1859), and of the Venetian region and Mantua (up to 1866), have the same design of their Austrian counterparts; the only difference is the currency. The first issue featuring the Austria coat of arms was replaced in November 1858 by a series of perforated stamps featuring the embossed head of the Emperor Franz Joseph. These stamps had a short life in Lombardy as a result of the 1859 Second Independence War that resulted in the annexation of Lombardy to the Kingdom of Sardinia, later on to become the Kingdom of Italy. Austria also lost all of her puppet states in Italy and was left with Mantua and the Venetian Region where the parallel Austrian stamps were issued with a denomination in soldi”. “
