La Posta di Giovanni Guareschi


Francesco Riboldi ci racconta una storia di altri tempi, di quando Giovanni Guareschi era direttore del Candido negli anni '50 e riceveva lettere affrancate con francobolli disegnati dai mittenti. Con questa raccolta imponente, uscita per la prima volta dagli archivi della Fondazione Mondadori, Riboldi ha organizzato una mostra tenuta a Lodi dal 9 giugno al 1 luglio 2007 e preparato un catalogo con tutte le riproduzioni delle lettere.
