2020 Italy Lighthouse Stamp

On 11 September 2020, Posteitaliane issued a stamp that shows Isola del Tino Lighthouse. This light is also known as Faro San Venerio, named after the patron saint of the Gulfo della Spezia. There are actually two lights at this location, the current one that was built in 1884 and the original one alongside that dates from 1840. The lights are located on a small island at the approach to the port of La Spezia in northwestern Italy.

This light is located on the southern end of the island of Ponza in the Tyrrhennian Sea west of Naples. The location of the lighthouse is marked with a red arrow at the lower left quadrant of the stamp.
