"Once upon a time in...Bolzano"
from July 2021
The modern practice of sending postcards, dates back to 1865. They were first introduced by a German post office director who recognised that modern communication habits required a faster and more simple medium than traditional letter writing.
The Gaetano Sessa collection includes around 2000 postcards. The collection is invaluable in allowing us to catch a glimpse of everyday life in Bolzano in a bygone age.
