1950 Targa Florio Advertising Poster Vintage Original.
This is a great VINTAGE poster for the 34th running of the Targa Florio / 10th running of the Giro di Sicilia.
It urges you to buy the race program which is available at every news stand and costs a mere 30 Lira.
It is printed on very thin paper and is in excellent condition bar a small tear at the top (visible in the scan) and two tape marks from being displayed in 1950. Folded as original but stored flat for decades.
Maybe the only one left in the world?
The race was won by Mario and Franco Bornigia on Alfa Romeo 8C-2500 Sperimentale.
Second place was for Inico Bernabei and Tulio Pacini on Ferrari 166 MM (S/N 0036M) which survives to this day while third place went to Baron Stefano La Motta (would get killed the next year at the same event...) & Gennaro Alterio on Ferrari 166 S (S/N 0011S) which was scrapped after La Motta was killed in it).
The poster measures some 69 x 50 cm or 28 x 20 inches and was printed in Palermo (where else?).
Only 1 available of course.
