About The Poster: A booklet of music sheets done in 1916 and featuring the colours of the Italian flag around what appears to be an Italianate column.   This is a 3 page songbook which was created for the Opera Nazionale Dopolavor (which loosely translates as the ITalian National Opera for After Work) with lyrics by Dott. Guido Fachinotti and music by Maestro Ilario Re.  There is some minor foxing and the cover page is separated from the rest of the book, but overall very good condition.  

Music sheets are a small form of ephemera which is highly collectable as it recalls a simpler period in history when language, music and cover art were integral components of culture. Purchased recently in Italy.
