The Giant Typewriter, Rome
About "The Giant Typewriter", Rome
All the Italien Skelis La Catrina and Swiss Skeli talked to, told them they had to see “the giant typewriter”. What on earth??? This turned out to be the “Altare della Partia or Il Vittoriano” - the Victor Emmanuel II Monument also referred to as the “Altar of the Nation”. It is a huge white marble building inaugurated in 1911, where you can see all of Rome from. It has everything pompous you can imagine: majestic staircases (see photograph with La Catrina), frescoes, allegorical statues. You name it, it’s got it! On a sad note, many valuable buildings were demolished during the time of it’s construction. It was a bit of a controversial monument, butour couple chose to go see it all the same.
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 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.
