The 22nd edition of the ‘Augusto Massari’ Prize for philately will take place in Vasto on the occasion of the VastoPhil 2023 national exhibition of Open, Thematic and Maxima Philately, scheduled from 15 to 17 September, at Palazzo d’Avalos, on the initiative of the ‘Nino Piccirilli’ Philatelic Society.
The event is characterised by the “one picture plus” format, which consists of exhibiting only the first frame of each entry, while the others are available on the website to the jury for the evaluation phase and to the public during the exhibition days and afterwards; visitors may browse the exhibits using computers available at the exhibition.
The Prix Massari is organised by the Music Group of the Italian Centre for Thematic Philately (CIFT) in cooperation with the Motivgruppe Musik e.V. Since its first edition in 1980, this event has been hosted in Belgium (2 times), France (5) Germany (3), Luxembourg (4) the Netherlands (1), San Marino (1) and, of course, Italy (5).
