Postcard photograph of Via Nazionale Appulo-Sannitica in Gambatesa

The original postcard image is titled Gambatesa - Viale Nazionale ("Avenue of the Nation").  Via Nazionale Appulo-Sannitica is also known as Via Nazionale Appula and Strada Statale No. 17 ("State Road No. 17").  It is the old road -- perhaps dating from Roman times -- between the provincial capital cities of Foggia and Campobasso.

This photograph looks from Gambatesa's Municipal Park (Largo Fontana) southwest toward the route to Campobasso.

Immediately to the viewer's right in the photograph would be Largo Fontana, and beyond that Viale Vittorio Veneto which runs parallel to this length of Via Nazionale.
