“u focularu” – 11 maggio 1973

Well, dear friends, as promised, I am sharing with you my recent finds…

The image presented below is a scanned version of the front cover of the very first issue of “u focularu” (Anno 1, Numero 1) and it is dated May 11, 1973.

Each page measures approximately 12″ x 17.5″ (30cm x 44cm). The front page features prose and an article by Dante Amato, an article by Egidia Amato, and an “open letter” from the President of Club Gagliato, Mr. Giuseppe Gareri (yes, my brother).

I believe it will be fun to create individual posts of each page in the newspaper. Next post will feature page 2.

Please, let me have some feedback!
