Robert Bartini (1897-1974) was an Italian aircraft designer, the author of more than 60 completed aircraft projects.

From 1923, Bartini lived and worked in the USSR. Having started as a laboratory assistant of the Scientific and Test Aerodrome on Khodynka, in just a couple of years he became the Head of the Scientific and Technical Department and as early as in 1930, the Chief Designer of the Research Institute of Civil Aviation.

Robert Bartini's experimental project, VVA-14 hydroplane, was capable of taking off and landing on water both as a conventional airplane and as a vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. On September 4, 1972, the VVA-14 plane executed its first flight. It was decided to modify the first constructed aircraft, VVA-14-1M to use it as a flarecraft (14M1P). These works were performed after Bartini's death in 1974.

The commemorative stamp provides a portrait of Robert Bartini and a configuration of the Stal-7 aircraft; the main image features VVA-14 hydroplane.
