I went to the post office this morning to post off a couple of adopt a tree pack to a couple who will be celebrating their ruby wedding anniversary soon. I hope they like the present.
I collect a receipt for this so I can claim it against tax. Any stationery shop in Italy will have at least one wall covered with a vast array of different types of receipt book.
So what happen is I pass my book over to the assistant in the post office who fills it in and stamps it and then retains a copy of my receipt book confirming what I have paid them in postage. Why would they need a copy of my receipt confirming this. Made in Italy.
