Swiss Skeli at Square of Spain
About Swiss Skeli at Square of Spain Postcard
Here we see our favorite couple Swiss Skeli and La Catrina at the Piazza di Spagna (English: Square of Spain). It is one of Rome’s most well-known squares. The name derives from “Palazzo di Spagna”, the seat of the Spanish Embassy for the Vatican, here since the 17th century. There are 135 steps, sometimes used for a fashion show in July (which La Catrina is hoping to convince Swiss Skeli to come back for).
These steps are called Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti in Italian and were constructed around the beginning of the 18th century. They connect the Piazza di Spagna to the Church of Trinità dei Monti.
This postcard is from around the 1970's. All cards mounted on white 250 g/m² paper with trimmed edges. Vintage postcard, collaged and overpainted with acrylic paint, 10.2 x 14.5 cm, no frame. Signed and dated in pencil on back. This can be easily erased in the event you want to use the card.
Please note that since these are antique postcards, some might contain small tears, pinholes and/or scratches. Fleshy tries her best to lovingly craft each card, but sometimes a tear might be too close to the overall subject to cut it out. The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.
Every postcard is a small, unique work of art!
Delivery throughout Europe and overseas is with normal postal mail in cardboard envelopes so nothing should bend. Postage and packaging are calculated at checkout.
