Design: In this striking illustration, a female figure dressed in a flowing white robe appears to be rising above the swelling waves of the sea, the bright light shining from the top of her head like a beacon reflecting the red lettering of the label name on the surface of the water. The green, white and red colouration in the lower segment subliminally suggests the national flag of Italy (right).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Helmut Janisch of Germany.
