Important Added Info: Note that this is an unusual Italian two-panel poster, because normally, they are taller than they are wide. This poster measures the same (55" x 78"), but it is wider than it is tall. Also note that this Italian two-panel was printed in 2 sections designed to overlap. Also note that the theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces).

Condition: fair. The theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces). There are paint stains and water stains on parts of several foldlines, and in some places, they have deteriorated the paper. The poster is very fragile and has separation, tears, and some tiny paper loss on parts of many foldlines (and in the borders). The poster is in urgent need of expert professional restoration. But the poster is mostly "all there", and after linenbacking by a talented professional, the poster will look fantastic, and it will likely require little paint restoration within the image. Please do not bid on this poster unless you can accept its defects described above or are willing to pay to have them properly restored!
