    Europa '51 (Lux Film, 1952). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (38.5" X 54.5") Dante Manno Artwork, Alternate U.S. Title: The Greatest Love.
    Roberto Rossellini directs this powerful Neorealist drama, a theoretical look at how the actions and philosophies of St. Francis of Assissi would fare in post-war Italy. Acting as a stand-in for Italy's famous saint, Ingrid Bergman plays a wealthy Roman socialite whose son commits suicide and deals with her grief by deciding to help her city's sick and poor. Her husband does not understand his wife's radical change in behavior and puts her in an insane asylum, fulfilling Rossellini's bleak outlook on society. Partial touchup on this country of origin poster includes corrections to the folds, small tears, and an ink censorship stamp. Unaddressed issues include unobtrusive tape stains, small chips with splices, and paper loss in the top right corner that also has a splice.
