The year 2019 will be very important for the Italian Federation of Philatelic Societies since they will celebrate their first Centenary. One of the highlights of the celebrations will be the 9th European Championship of Thematic Philately (ECTP), to be held in Verona from 22 to 24 November 2019.
Thanks also to the support of Damian Läge, the German Philatelic Federation (BDPh) and the Regional Philatelic Federation of Nordrhein – Westfalen (VDPh) kindly agreed with the proposal of the Italian Federation to host the next edition of the ECTP in Italy.
The ECTP will be held in the framework of the 133th VERONAFIL International Stamp Fair, on the grounds of the Verona Fair. This biannual event, organized by Verona’s Associazione Filatelica Numismatica Scaligera, ranks amongst the most successful philatelic trade fairs in Europe.
The Italian national thematic association (CIFT) and the Union of Olympic and Sport Collectors (UICOS), both awarded with FEPA Certificate of Appreciation in recent years, will cooperate to organize a successful event.
The 9th European Championship of Thematic Philately (ECTP) has received the FEPA Recognition by the unanimity of all Delegates at the FEPA Congress.
