Vintage Airline Poster - Alitalia 1955

italia, by Alitalia, circa 1955. Ali means wings in Italia, and Italia, is, well, Italy. Alitalia is the 

Società Aerea Italiana, and is almost no more. (The airline went bankrupt in 2017). But back in 1955, you could be enticed to fly to Italy via Alitalia courtesy of this image of Italian gastronomy. 

This is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, and not a reproduction.

These fragile travel posters are from an era long past, one where traveling to Hawaii by plane was a large part of the adventure. People used to dress up in their finest clothes for the privilege of air travel.

This art was hand-selected by us. It is linen-backed with a natural wheat paste, onto acid free paper and 15 oz. #10 cotton duck canvas to enhance and preserve its value. The backing provides structure to otherwise fragile paper, and the process greatly slows down the aging of the poster. The process is fully reversible, hence archival, and no toxic, acidic or chemical agents are used. The art was then framed in gallery grade, slim-faced, contemporary décor frames made under Berne Convention and UCC practices.

This is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, and not a reproduction.

There is only one like this available. Will it be yours?
