86. International Treasures - Italy, The Palio and The Vatican



The green white and red flag of Italy is deceptive in its simplicity. Included in this Grouping are examples of Italian national flags from both the Royal and Republican eras.

More significant are the flags from several of the Contradas of the Palio in Sienna. Extremely rare these flags are never seen outside Italy and rarely encountered there. Presented here are Eagle, Tower, and Panther Contrada banners from the 19th century. Although technically not Italian, but certainly associated with Rome is a rare 19th century Pontifical military color used before the unification of Italy.

Also included in this Grouping is a complete collection of miniature Contradas banners of the Palio.
