The Bacchus Tarot is a large-size art deck inspired by the god of wine: Bacchus to the Romans, Dionysus to the Greeks. The major arcana show the events and adventures of the life of Bacchus, the suits illustrate aspects of the industry of wine-making, and the court cards represent the major wine-making countries. From the creator of the Medieval Scapini Tarot.
The Enoil Gavat Tarot - Tavaglione, the artist's name, backwards - is an Italian esoteric Tarot featuring Egyptian, astrological, Hebrew, numerological and other symbolism inside very decorated borders.
The Fantastico Viaggio di un Manichino, which roughly translates to 'The Fantastic Voyage of a Mannequin,' is a 22-card deck from Osvaldo Menegazzi. Each large-size card pictures a faceless wooden puppet in modern and slightly surreal surroundings.
I Misteri della Sibilla (Mysteries of the Sybil) is a 52-card Italian fortune-telling deck. The cards are watercolour, illustrating mainly daily life in Italian society around 1890, printed with simple keywords and playing card associations.
This Tarot de Marseille is a 78-card restored Conver Marseille deck, published by Dal Negro for the Italian Accademia dei Tarocchi (Academy of Tarot).
Also known as the Romeo and Juliet Tarot, the Shakespeare Tarot is a beautiful deck from artist Luigi Scapini where the cards are linked with scenes and characters from the Bard's plays. The minor arcana feature the pips, but also include colourful illustrations.
The Tarocchi di Dario Fo is an original 78-card deck from Italian Nobel Prize winner and artist, Dario Fo. The Tarot scenes are inspired by Renaissance art, and are framed inside the card, as though on the walls of a gallery.
Il Tarocco Bizzarro interprets the Piedmontese style of Tarot with an ironic twist to reduce the seriousness of Tarot. The art is the creation of Italian artist Franco Bruna, who was known for his caricatures of local politicians and celebrities. The majors are fully illustrated, but the suit cards are less so.
The Tarocco delle Vetrate is a stunning, gloriously coloured Tarot from Luigi Scapini, artist of the Medieval Scapini Tarot and Shakespeare Tarot. The minors are generally pip-style cards, but some are very scenic. Though the cards have Italian titles, the companion booklet has a section in English.
The Tarocco Piemontese is a reproduction by Dal Negro of a 19th century Italian style of deck. It has double-ended imagery on the major arcana and court cards, and pip cards in the minor arcana.
The Tarot Lukumi is dedicated to Santeria, the Afro-Cuban Orisha Spiritual system known to its practitioners as Lukumi.
The Tuffo nel Mistero - translated as Plunge into Mystery - is another deck from prolific Italian artist, Luigi Scapini. It's a reduced tarot deck that has only six numbered cards in each suit, for a total of 62 cards.
The Venice Tarot pays homage to one of the most fascinating cities in the world, a city of lovers, of the Carnivale, of masks and a little magic, in its heyday during the 16th to 18th century. The majors are linked to Venetian historical characters, and the majors are fully illustrated, some in a Rider-Waite style, others unique to this deck.
