Sorry this one is so big. I can’t figure out how to make it smaller but you can click on the bottom and see it in better size in a pop up box.
You’re a lucky man Phil. Coming from America the chances of ever having a find like this is next to nil for me.
Thanks for posting all of that, Phil…some truly great memorabilia there, from some of the best ‘Spags’.
Very nice Phil !
Well there are plenty of them on Italian ebay if you really want them and they actually do not cost that much:
It’s much easier for me from Denmark to find an Italian locandina for a spaghetti western than the ditto Danish movie poster The Italian locandina and manifesto are nice to have as they sport the original classic artwork. I collected them for a while but there is simply so much good stuff to buy
True. But it was nice to stumble across a pile of them and chat to the old guy with his broken English and my even more broken Italian. Ebay makes so much so easily available to us these days but somehow takes away the pleasure of the unexpected treasure discovery.
Totally agree. It’s certainly more fun finding stuff in real life than just digging them up on the web You are also better able to judge which state the stuff is in, and save on Italian postage which can be quite gruesome.
My ebay comment was directed at the statement that such stuff wasn’t to be easily found in the US which is of course true but it’s also pretty hard or impossible to find in the UK, so if you don’t have the means to go to Italy they are readily available on the global flea market
Oh I’ve definitely purchased my fair share of posters from Ebay, but like Phil has already said, I was talking more about finding these posters in a shop. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve searched the antique shops near where I live (which is Western Washington) and leave empty-handed. I usually get excited thinking that this one place might be where I find a nice original poster. I honestly don’t care what era or movie it’s from, I’d just like to find one. Unfortunately what I usually end seeing is cheap reproduction art and broken furniture.
Thanks for the link though! I’m actually going to scour through there see if there isn’t a nice one.
Spent 5 days last week in Bologna and of course I couldn’t resist a bit of Spaghetti memorabilia hunting.
Didn’t find the same kind of gold mine as in Pisa but there was a SAC office there and was able to pick up a couple of Locandine.
Nice finds! I always liked the artwork for both of those posters and have been seriously considering getting them. How much did these set you back?
“E Per Tetto” … don’t care what anyone says, I like it! - the music the locations and the poster! more than make up for some of it’s shortcomings - Nice find!
14 euros each which I think is pretty standard.
Not having to pay postage helps too.
Good prices, that Django one cost me 26 euros on eBay.
Hi Phil … if you ever get tired of ‘E Per Tetto …’ drop me a line - Muchas gracias !
