TRIPOLI FAIR 2014

Our Facebook friend from France Mr. Gilles Thevenon wrote this interesting article published in "Le Progrès de Lyon" (Sunday 6.7.2014). Thanks a lot Mr. Thevenon !

*******************************************
LES TIMBRES DE LIBYE
La chute du régime du colonel Kadhafi en 2011, l’intervention de l’OTAN et le cheminement délicat vers l’Etat de droit ont placé la Libye au cœur de l’actualité.
La philatélie libyenne constitue un riche témoignage de l’histoire et de la culture de ce pays: ce sont d’abord les timbres de la période coloniale italienne montrant les richesses de l’antiquité romaine, les réalisations architecturales du fascisme et évoquant aussi les combats de la Seconde guerre mondiale. L’occupation alliée permet de décliner une collection de timbres britanniques surchargés ainsi que les valeurs émises par l’administration française, dans le sud, le « territoire du Fezzan-Ghadamès ». La philatélie permet aussi de découvrir le régime du Roi Idriss jusqu’à sa déposition, le 1er septembre 1969 par le colonel Kadhafi. S’ensuit alors une période de 41 ans marquée philatéliquement par l’omniprésence du « guide » libyen.
Depuis sa chute, plusieurs nouvelles séries ont été émises toujours en phase avec l’histoire et la culture du pays: parmi les récentes émissions, un intéressant bloc-feuillet de six valeurs (6 dinars libyens) émis à l’occasion de la Foire Internationale de Tripoli montrant des mets de la gastronomie locale traditionnelle et permettant de découvrir des tajines ainsi que des couscous aux poissons et à la viande.
