Our Heritage, a long-established firm dealing with FOLDING TRAVEL MAPS of Italy. The exclusive importer of maps published by the Litografia Artistica Cartografica (LAC) of Firenze, Italy (the same company which supplies the Italian government), Our Heritage carries the most complete Italian map inventory in the world. Each Region, each Province and 27 of Italy's largest Cities are covered in the diverse and specialized collection, which also include a number of Italian Resort Areas. The LAC maps offer the largest scale of any maps in current distribution, revealing the smallest, often unobserved details. They have also proved valuable for genealogy research. It would be correct and valid to point out that even if they could find any of the Italia, limited Regions or limited City Maps at a bookstore.

Wall relief maps Four-color, 3D displays exist for all regions and provinces and measure 3-4 feet high by 2-3 feet wide.
The Our Heritage map selection is the largest anywhere (for a complete listing of Our Heritage maps please see Heritage
