Stamps of Italy and Italian Colonies

by Tony Clayton

This site was started in 2010 to provide images of interesting Italian stamps, ranging from the very common to the very rare. Stamps are mainly from my own collection, although use has been made of images provided by the Italy and Colonies Study Circle of which the author is the Packet Secretary.

The site is best viewed on a desktop or laptop, as it is not fully optimised for mobile phones yet.

I hope to add a 'For Sale' section in due course.
