Thank you very much, Ladies

The Officers club, is so nicely perforated,
it may be an Italian Postage Stamp Tab / Label.
I'll keep my eyes open for that.

Rod,

I enjoy very much to see all eight pages of this thread, thanks for starting it and share your collection with us. I have the occupations set you posted in the first page. Although not belongs to one of my collections, I bought it since I very like this set and it is the only one from Italy I prepared album page:

This beautiful set made come back in 2020 when Italy issued a souvenir sheet shows the 1950 stamp images in the sheet margins. The central stamp shows "Modern Occupations":

Beside this, I have Italian stamps in my Roman Mythology collection and several great engraved art stamps, but all in stock books, not yet on album pages.

Thanks for your kind words, Phil.
Indeed, one of the World's classic stamp sets !
You have a spanking set.

I recall 1970's Housing here in Western Australia,
if you wanted top class bricklaying, or concrete,
one always turned to the Italians, (if you could get them)
Master craftsmen.

The 200 lira is valuable if I recall.

Found on www.ibolli.it :
"Il sovraprezzo fu destinato al comitato onoranze a Ferrucci"
(the surcharge was allocated to the Ferrucci's Honour Committee)

Well, I have Italian set but overprinted for use in Italian colonies and I hope not a problem to post in this thread. It is a set issued by Italy in 1930 to celebrate the 2000th anniversary birth of the Roman poet Virgil. I added this set to my Roman Mythology collection.

The first page show the complete set (overprinted for use in Somalia and in the Aegean Islands (air)):

I prepared another page with several stamps of the set show specifically the Virgil's Aeneid, epic tells about Aeneas Voyage to Rome:

Here is one engraved stamp from the set I think the most attractive:

HUGE fan, myself of CORRADO MEZZANA myself
Currently have circa 48 designs by him.
Check out Tripolotania...his contribution, Superb!

Subsidiary info:
The first stamps of New South Wales, AUSTRALIA also quote VIRGIL
"Sic Fortis Etruria crevit" (Georgic ll,v 533)
Thus mighty Etruria grew (Rome)

Mercury has adopted a more sinister visage, dispensing with the winged cloth of the Petasos, for a steel helmet.

The lower is a character from the Hindu epic The Ramayana. It is Hanuman Monkey-god, the loyal servant of Lord Rama:
