About 700th Anniversary of the Death of Dante Alighieri

An artistically designed souvenir sheet with two stamps commemorates the 700th anniversary of the death of the Italian writer Dante Alighieri. Designer Thomas Giger created pen and ink drawings for the issue, the characteristics of which are particularly accentuated in the steel engraving. In addition to the special stamps "Portrait of Dante Alighieri" (face value: CHF 3.70) and "Writing Hand with Quill" (face value: CHF 4.00), the image on the souvenir sheet is based on a scene from Dante's main work Divina Commedia (The Divine Comedy).
