This one is interesting because the postal rubber stamp is different. Most of the postcards I’ve shared here have a round rubber stamp, often from Venezia Ferrovia. But this one is Palazzo Grassi. Too bad part of it is missing!
It reads, “Cari saluti ora. Chi sempre ti pensa. Luciano” Dated 25 July 1951.
Though I speak some Italian, this phrasing was odd to me, so I reached out to Adriano to ask for help with the translation. Here is what he replied:
What a fabulous interpretation!
The best part: Notice the handwriting on the front, bottom right corner, where Luciano has written “cara mia” with an arrow pointing to the corner. Maybe he was sitting in that spot when he wrote the postcard. Can you read the name of the recipient?
The address is Nella Corcetta Pulfero, Provincia, Udine, a tiny town of 902 people (in 2019) in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, up near the border. It’s not really that far from Venice, at least not as far as other postcards I’ve shared. Still, Luciano seems to be sad to be away from the one he always thinks about.
