Italian Philatelic Society (Circolo Filatelico Italiano) Vic

Post by ivanhoe »

I am the treasurer of the club that has been around since 1977.

The club meets once a month on the 2nd Monday of the month 7.30pm at the Abruzzo Club in Lygon St Brunswick VIC.
Mail address CFI, PO Box 166 Niddrie VIC 3042

The club has theme evenings with member displays. An annual competition for the Brombara Trophy and shield. Also an annual Christmas dinner.

Each meeting we have a bottle raffle and an auction of member lots.

Members speak Italian but English is also spoken.

Collecting themes by members goes beyond Italian stamps into all collecting themes.

Beats me. I don't tend to go into such minutae. A search of any good Italian catalogue will give you the answer.
There are probably members in the club that would have this information.
I personally don't collect new Italian issues.
All the best.

I occasionally go into such minutiae.
Here's the result (notice the difference between the first two maximum cards)

Hi there,

My name is Melissa Brombara my dad told me about the Brombara Trophy and that it was established once his father passed away. His fathers name is Emilio Brombara. Could anyone tell me anything they know about this trophy as I would love to know more about it.

Thanks

Melissa
I have contacted the secretary of the club for some information regarding your grandfather, this is his reply:
Hi Joe,
the only thing that I know about the Brombara Trophy is that it was named after Emilio Brombara after his passing.
I think he was one of the founders of the Club in 1977
I know Bruno Caramarco ( ex president ) knew him well and maybe he could give more information to this person,
his phone number is - 9350 1685
I could supply a photo of the trophy if interested, let me know
Regards, Frank
I had this scan of the initial founding attendance register but cannot see the Brombara name.

I hope that this has been of some use to you, if I find anything further I will let you know.
Giuseppe

Here is a photo of the Brombara Cup (normally referred to as The Brombara) our annual stamp competition trophy. If you want you can contact one of the founding members of the club, and still an active member Domenico Biviano. (you can get his number from me at my email address gggurrieri@iprimus.com.au).
All the best and if new information comes up I'll let you know.
