Leave for the sake of leaving

Leonard Maltin, in The Disney Poster Book, spoke about the essential duty that was innate to a movie poster’s life, “The poster was literally an attraction, a come-on that beckoned pedestrians to make plans to see the show.” The same could be said for vintage travel posters from distant lands, whose stylized and brilliantly colored sheets enticed passersby to dream of, or better yet book, passage to enchanting locales.

Along the back wall of World’s Showcase newest Italian establishment, Via Napoli, tempting postings from every corner of Italy can still be found and admired.
