re: AFV on Italy #598

Hi Bob,

Looks like "AEV", and looks like it is part of the cancellation on the stamp.

Below that, also in all-caps, I see _ERGE and below that I also see LIBRO (book).
Some kind of slogan cancel, I guess...

I tried googling Italian words that end in AEV, and came up empty. The stamp honors Luigi Vanvitelli, architect.

I can't associate the cancellation with any significant event in 1952 Italy...

Thanks for the fun puzzle!

re: AFV on Italy #598

Now this is a loooong shot, but here goes...

AEV (or AAEV, if this is only part of the cancel) could refer to "Archivio Architetto Enzo Venturelli", a private archive with the Turin State Archives, or to the architect himself. Venturelli was a prominent Italian architect during the 1950's, so a contemporary architecture subject wouldn't be out of place as a cancellation on a stamp celebrating an 18th century architect. An archive could also explain the "libro" reference.....

I may not be very good at puzzles, but I have fun smashing pieces in where they don't really fit!
