Italy : Globe Postcard Service - Zone 2 (America & Asia) Issue 2014 : Rome

Globe Postcard Service (GPS) is a private postal service, providing postal delivery outside of Italy. There are 3 different zones division and it being reflected into the price.

ZONE 1 : €1.20 : European Countries
ZONE 2 : €2.00 : America and Asia Continents

TOURIST STAMP
The company put a forward note that these stamps are not valid for postage within Italy.

Stamps' design for all three zones are similar except for three colour-code

ZONE 1 : Green
ZONE 2 : Orange
ZONE 3 : Blue

Each strip only has 5 stamps with different design,

Stamp 1 : Coliseum
Stamp 2 : Vatican City
Stamp 3 : Trevi Fountain
Stamp 4 : x
Stamp 5 : Spanish Steps

As I have never seen other stamps design from different region, I can only speculate that each region has its own design with local themes.

PRIVATE POSTAL SERVICE
Is an alternative to official or national postal service and licensed to sell, collect and make delivery of postcards and/or letters.
