The caption in the corner tells us that this poster was made in 1941. Interestingly, the date is followed by the roman numeral XIX, meaning that it was printed in the 19th year of the “Fascist Era”, which began with the march on Rome on 28/10/1922. The logo in the upper left says “Fascist Union of Traders”, and the caption in the lower left says “Autarky and Commerce”, which seems to be a newspaper. However, chances are this wasn’t an advertisement in the newspaper, because it says “Poster approved by…” in tiny.
