History

The Gronchi Rosa stamp was created as part of a set of stamps celebrating Giovanni Gronchi's visit to three South American countries. It was supposed to commemorate the president's stopover in Peru. However, an error was made on the stamp betweeen the borders of Peru and Brazil.

A later version corrected this error.

Many forgeries of the Gronchi Rosa stamp are known to exist.
