Postcrossing postcards on show at genoa central mail office

The kind and efficient employees of the central post office in genoa, italy, are now well acquainted with those crazy boys and girls who carry nearly 2 kilos of postcards to be sent all over the world every Monday after each meetup (8 in the last 12 months).
Since they are well aware of our passion for postcards and our devotion to Postcrossing, they offered us the display boards in the hall of the philatelic office (where small post-themed exhibitions are normally held) free of charge for a few weeks to help us make more people know and join this website we love so much.
Irene (@iside82) and I have seized this opportunity to exhibit postcards from our private collections and we have set up this small exhibition with Postcrossing meetup postcards and postcards featuring ships and lighthouses.
Genoa was the Capital of Culture in 2004, it is one of the main Italian ports, moreover for 62 years it has been home to a prestigious boat show, so the exhibition can’t miss the chance to show the naval theme as well as lighthouses, as the symbol of Genoa is the old lighthouse built in 1543, which is the third oldest still working and the fifth tallest in the world.
If you are in Genoa during the short period of time of this exhibition, do not miss a visit, or come in December when genoa will be the capital of Christmas 2022 and maybe attend one of our next meetups :smiley:

on this display board visitors can read how Postcrossing works and maybe they decide to be a part of this project :smiley:

when we are talking about the weight of signed meetup postcards to send we are not joking :rofl:

Did you know that there are Postcrossing-Flyer available?
That would be a great addition to curious people to take away! :heart_eyes: :postcrossing:
Look here: Postcrossing-Flyer - if you hurry up you may still have a chance to order today!
(I’m more than welcome to help you guys to order them in case of any problems - since this flyer-project takes place in Germany and is linked to the Postcrossing-stamp launch event in Berlin.)
