This is an extremely rare original vintage poster issued in 1923 to promote "The fifth International Trade Fair in Padova".
Padua (Padova) claims to be the oldest cities in northern Italy. According to a tradition dated at least to the time of Virgil's Aeneid and to Livy's Ab Urbe Condita, Padua was founded around 1183 BC by the Trojan prince Antenor.
The poster is designed by Marcello Dudovich. Dudovich was an Italian painter, illustrator, and poster designer. Together with Leonetto Cappiello, Adolfo Hohenstein, Giovanni Maria Mataloni and Leopoldo Metlicovitz he is considered one of the progenitors of Italian poster design.
In very good condition. Mounted on linen.
