We only sell Original Vintage Advertising Posters, we do not sell reproductions. This Vintage Poster comes with a Certificate of Authenticity upon purchase!

Baci di Alassio (literally meaning “Kisses from Alassio”) is named as such because of the way sweet pastries are made – pairs of cookies with a touch of filling to connect them as if they are kissing.

This romantic image shows a beautiful couple kissing under the moonlight as they sit alongside the seaside with mountains in the background, and palm trees on the right.
