Toscana, Italy

This card is from the favorites tag. Toscana, or Tuscany in English, is a region in Italy that was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Many historical and literary greats made Tuscany their home, including Petrarch, Galileo, Dante, Leondardo da Vinci, and Puccini. Tuscany is also famous for its wine. I'm not sure about geese, though. ;)

The stamp, celebrating the 150th anniversary of Italian unification, was issued in January 2011.
