Vintage travel posters are all the rage. Check out how folks are decorating with them HERE on this post from the website Apartment Therapy. They are gorgeous, and inspiring, too.
This one is particularly fetching. Don’t you just want to be the girl in the poster. (If you’re a guy, you can imagine being the boy riding on the Vespa behind the girl in the poster). I mean, those sunglasses! That shirt! It is Italian style personified. That is the great thing about vintage Italian travel posters. They inspire, they transport.
Of course, we at Tour Italy Now are partial to vintage Italian travel posters. I love this one.
This past weekend we couldn’t resist clicking around and trying to decide which one was our favorite. And guess what. It is impossible to pick just one! There are too many charmingly whimsical and brilliantly inspiring examples out there, so we created a Pinterest board with all of our favorites.
After collecting all of these images, now we are shopping for a few posters ourselves. This one, the girl on the Vespa, is on my list. I’m also considering this one, of Palermo, and this one, of Liguria, too.Here are some online outlets for vintage Italian travel posters: Poster Classics is a great online source, as is International Posters.
Last but not least, There is a wonderful book to check out, Travel Italia: The Golden Age of Italian Travel Posters.
What about you? If you own any vintage Italian travel posters, please share a photo! Or even better, have these iconic images inspired a trip to Italy?
Yours in celebrating Italy
