BOVES (CUNEO). Cert. per Azioni di L.100. multicolour. No 1061. Central fold. Very large format piece, with great view of Boves, with the Alps behind. Gold-print and many colours in flags, statues, etc. Certainly one of the finest Italian pieces. The company built two power-stations (still to be seen today), on theriver Gesso and provided electricity to the Alpi Maritimi region. It was a cooperative, and all members lived in Boves; in fact, Boves is printed on the share as the shareholder's address. In the 1960s the cooperative was taken over by ENEL. Rarity 8.
