|General Description :||A painting by Botticelli inspired the 40 lire stamp illustration.
Italians say that there are two Italies. We say there are two worlds. But we all agree that we are talking about one before Dante and another one after Dante. He put his life on the line by demanding the separation of Church from State. He changed western society forever, which is the type we enjoy today in the free world.
