1920s Remarkable Vintage Italian Moral Sign in Tin on a Wooden Board

About

Vintage and extremely rare tin sign on a wooden support produced in Turin in the circa 1920s by ALBERICI E C for the “La lega generale italiana contro la bestemmia e il turpiloquio” (The Italian general league against blasphemy and foul language). The sign text on three lines advise the reader as follow: First line: "Non lordare il Tuo labbro con.." ( Don’t smear your lips with... ) Second line: "BESTEMMIE e TURPILOQUIO" ( Blasphemy and Foul Language) Third line: "Se non vuoi disonorarti" (If you do not want to dishonor yourself). The sign wanted to have a moralistic intent in a highly Catholic country like Italy. At the time, in fact, the religious blasphemy could have been prosecuted.
