On September 16, 2014 the italian Ministry of Economic Development authorized the issue of an ordinary stamp dedicated to the National Laboratories of Gran Sasso (LNGS), in the value of € 0.70.  The postage is included in the issue of four values ​​belonging to the thematic series “The excellence of knowledge“, which includes three other National Laboratories of the INFN (Frascati, Legnaro and “Laboratori del Sud”).
Printed by the Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato SpA, the stamp will have a circulation of two million and seven hundred thousand copies.

The stamp, created by Cristina Bruscaglia, depicts the interior of the Borexino experiment for the detection of neutrinos against the background of traces left by particles detected with a cloud chamber.
