Italian prisoner draws images for Vatican stamps

Among the vignettes signed by the prisoner, who is passionate about drawing, there is a representation of the Madonna and Child specially designed for Christmas.

These stamps, of which 60,000 copies will be printed, will bear a value of €1.10 to €1.15.
