'Italian Sport' series

Italian Post Office has issued a stamp belonging to the ordinary series under the theme "Italian Sport" dedicated to 50th anniversary celebration of the XVII Olympic Games 1960.

In the left corner of the stamp one can see the logo of the XVII Olympic Games, the she-wolf who suckled Romulus and Remus, the Olympic rings and a scroll with Roman numerals "MCMLX" (year of the Games). At right there is a torchbearer portrait next to the tripod with the Olympic flame.
