Cover - Italy

Received this lovely cover from Italy yesterday. Two striking things about the cover - A complete set of stamps and the Pope Francis cancellation.

The stamps were issued on the 5th of April 2013 and commemorate the Gardens of Castel Trauttmansdorff in Merano, the Cinque Terre National Park and the Botanic Garden Museum in Bari. Each of the stamps is denominated 0.7 Euro. The stamps feature a vertical strip on the left composed of flowers and plants representative of the flora of the relevant botanic garden. Beautiful stamps.
