TOP-PRIZED VIGNOLA CHERRIES
6 June 2015 – â‚¬ 0.80
Stamp featuring the world-famous cherries of Vignola, a town situated at the foot of the hills between Modena and Bologna. Since the early 1800s the local economy continues to prosper on the production of high quality fruits, with greater emphasis on four distinctive types of cherries. Vignola holds two popular festivals to promote its top-prized cherries: one in April called Cherry Blossom Festival and the other in June with emphasis on the gourmet aspects such as risotto with cherries, as well as cherry jams, preserves, ice-creams, and liquors.
The stamp depicts a glass filled with cherries and in the background an orchard and a view of Vignola; at top right is the logo of the Consortium for the Protection of Vignolaâ€™s Cherries.
