Description

FRANCESCO MOROSINI (1619 – 1694) eroe e Doge della Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia e’ stato onorato filatelicamente da Poste Italiane nel quarto centenario della nascita con un francobollo commemorativo emesso il 26 febbraio 2019 che raffigura a sinistra un dipinto di meta’ Settecento che ritrae Francesco Morosini in abiti di Capitano Generale da Mar e a destra sullo sfondo un’antica carta geografica del Regno di Morea sulla quale sovrasta un modello in legno di una galea, tipica nave da guerra usata nel Mar Mediterraneo dal IX al XVIII secolo. Il suddetto francobollo, applicato alla Cartolina  Maximum qui riprodotta e’ concordemente timbrato con l’annullo pittorico primo giorno di Venezia.

 

FRANCESCO MOROSINI (1619 – 1694) was a truly remarkable figure of the Most Serene Republic of Venice. On 26 February 2019 the Italian Posts issued a stamp commemorating his 400th birthday. The stamp design is a composite of a 1700s painting portraying him as Captain General of the Sea; at right in the background is an old map of Morea (southern Greece) and in the foreground is a model of a Galea, a type of warship deployed by Venice in the Mediterranean from the Ninth to the Eighteenth century. The Maximum Card shown here bears the said stamp which is cancelled by Venice’s perfectly matching first day of issue pictorial postmark.
