On Dec. 14, 2013, Vaccari Prestige in Italy will auction the Enea Air Mail Collection, including rocket and space mail.
The adventure of human flight and space conquest have always fascinated the human mind. In half a century, space flight from a dream of just a few scholars turns to a frantic race between the two superpowers, USA and USSR.

"Space" mail is one of the most modern and charming chapters in philately. It testifies, through commemorative postage stamps and letters relevant to space flights, one of the most important scientific goals in human history. The cancellation "MOON LANDING - 20 July 1969," the complete series of flight covers carried to the Moon by Apollo missions, the first historic docking between two Soyuz spacecrafts in space with Earth-Space letters delivery, the first space postage stamp, postmark and post office, true human evidence, through mail, of "living in Space."
