Italy 2017, 15th FAI Paragliding World Championship".

The 15th FAI Paragliding World Championship was held from July 1st till July 15th, 2017 in the famous Italian flying site of Monte Avena. This 95c postage stamp released by Poste Italiane depicts a flying athlete, designed by Bozzettista Fabio Abbati and inspired by a photograph taken by paraglider pilot and photographer Andrea Schenal. 

Monte Avena (located: 46° 1'59.51"N 11°49'2.26"E) stands in a panoramic position, overlooking the valleys of Feltre and Belluno. 

It seems, that the image shows the flying athlet over Monte Avena. A view towards north with the Monte Vallazza (2'167 m) of the Alpi Feltrine in the background left.
