ITALY COVER with stamp GIOVANNI GIORGIGiovanni Giorgi (27 November 1871 - 19 August 1950) was an Italian electrical engineer who invented the Giorgi system of measurement, the precursor to the International System (SI).
Giorgi was born in Lucca and studied engineering at the Institute of Technology of Rome, he worked at Fornaci Giorgi in Ferentino, then was the director of the Technology Office of Rome between 1906 and 1923. He also taught at the University of Rome between 1913 and 1939.
Toward the end of the 19th century, after James Clerk Maxwell's discoveries, it was clear that electric measurements could not be explained in terms of the three fundamental units of length, mass and time. Therefore, in 1901, Giorgi proposed to the AEI (Associazione Elettrotecnica Italiana) a new system that had as fundamental units the metre, the kilogram, the second and a fourth unit to be chosen from the units of electrotechnology.
In 1935 this was adopted by the IEC as the Giorgi system, also known as MKSΩ, because the fourth fundamental unit was that of electrical resistance, the ohm. In 1960, at the 11th General Conference of Weights and Measures, the SI (International System) was adopted, which was based on seven fundamental units: metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela.
Giorgi died in Castiglioncello, Livorno at the age of 79.
Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi (10 October 1813 – 27 January 1901) was an Italian Romantic composer, mainly of opera. Some of his themes have long since taken root in popular culture – such as "La donna è mobile" from Rigoletto, "Va, pensiero" (The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves) from Nabucco, "Libiamo ne' lieti calici" (The Drinking Song) from La traviata and the "Grand March" from Aida.

If any island, however small it may be, wishes to become a state, it will issue a postage stamp. This stamp will in turn bestow upon the island the mark of statehood in the same way that the sea marks its borders.
