Tarocchi Andrea Picini
by Andrea Picini, Galleria d'Arte "L'Antenna" 1979.
Andrea Picini (1935-2003) was a significant figure in late 20th century Italian art, so much so that a museum in Rome was established in 2009 dedicated to his work. He worked in various media, sculpture, painting and graphics. He was much influenced by esotericism and alchemy and also adopted strong political stances being a close friend of Bettino Craxi. Needless to say, Picini had nearly 100 exibitions of his work, the first being in 1955. His tarot sets the familiar figurative forms within abstract geometric structures. There were created in mixed media of painting and collage. His long term involvement in erotic art is explored in his tarot. In the Majors the titles of each card are woven into the artwork. In the Minors, keywords associated with the card are worked into the design. 78 cards 138x83mm.

Tarocchi della Salute
by Eneida Duarte Gaspar, Brazil, Pallas, 2002.
Possibly a promotional item for the magazine Starbene ('Fitness'). a weekly magazine of good health ('Salute').

The artist has used a rather acid palette with a dominant Chrome Yellow. The imagery is classical, drawing on 16th century Italian book illustrations.
22 cards Majors only deck. 118x73mm. Cards are worn with some minor creasing. Rare item.

Anna Bella - Rizzoli. 1987.
Issued with Anna Number 34 August 1987. Two sets of cards - 12 larger format cards each for one of the twelve astrological houses and 36 smaller format cards.

Le spine quoted directly from Magritte's 'Le Coup au Coeur '(The Blow to the Heart) 1952. A few of the images relate to traditional tarot - il Carro, il Sole, la Ruota, la Folla, il Monaco (Hermit).

Thus cards are named 1 - Elegua, 2 - Jemaja, 3 - Obatala, 4 - Orunmila, 5 - Osain, and so on.

Tarocchi di Hermann Haindl
by Hermann Haindl.
Italian edition. Haindl painted these on large canvasses. To begin with he placed these on the floor and dripped and smeared paint on them to create the background tones and textures. He then drew in the detailed forms in black outline, sometimes scratching back the first paint layer to the white ground. He then worked over the canvas applying paint with small brushes.
In places he draws on the Crowley/Freida Harris designs.
The courts of the Wands are associated with Hinduism, Cups to Celtic and Nordic culture, Swords to Ancient Egypt and Stones to Native American Indian mythology.

Tarocchi Del Calderone Magico
by Maria Giusi Ricotti, Micaela Balice, Nelly Morino, You Can Print Self Publishing. 2015.
I Tarocchi del Calderone Magico (Magical Cauldron) is a deck of 78 cards designed by Italian graphic designer Maria Giusi Ricotti using a multiple level photo collage technique. The deck is the result of her careful observation and imagination and offers a vision of the Arcana connected to the dimension of the sacred. Stripped of all the stiff iconography of traditional tarots, these tarot cards lead us to reflect, by means of a world of colours and suggestions, on the more significant life themes and the evolutionary path that pervades them. The ideas of neo-paganism are referred to by a Female Spiritual point of view. The Minor Arcana are part of a system based on the relationship between the four elements and the magic ancient card suits: Pentacles-Earth, Cups-Water, Swords-Air, Wands-Fire.
The Tarot deck is accompanied by a colour book written in Italian that develops itself on three different levels of language - images, poetry and symbolism: in this book Maria Giusi Ricotti's Tarot cards are accompanied by poems written by poetess Micaela Balice and by a descriptive text of their meanings, according to archetypal and evolutionary terms (no divination), by Astrologer and Tarot reader Nelly Morini.

Tarocco Marocchino
by Michael Hobdell, Roland Berrill, 1975.
This is the Royal Fez Moroccan Tarot, published bt U.S. Games, repacked for the Italian Market. The same cards but in a different box.
Roland Berrill, the founder of the MENSA organization, came up with the idea of the Royal Fez tarot deck, based on a legend that tarot was a remnant of secret societies that once existed in Fez, Morocco. Sometime in the 1950s he hired artist Michael Hobdell to create the artwork which drew on the Rider-Waite imagery but to some extent locating it within a Moroccan context. Around 1970, the decks were published by Rigel Press, Ltd., and later, in the 1970s, U.S. Games and AG Mueller both published editions. The Majors are numbered but not titled while the Minors have no numbers or titles.

Tarocchi perduti di Fausta Cilli
by Fausta Cilli, Andrea Forte, Alia Uno, Rome. 1988.
The Tarocchi Perduti consists of five decks by four separate artists. Andrea Forte believed she had recovered the "lost" structure of the tarot, and commissioned these four artists to create a tarot based on these ideas. This involved extending the arcana to 35 and introducing a number of male and female versions of The Lovers, the Magician, Hanged Man, Hermit and Fool. The essence of Andrea Forte's concept is perhaps to balance the male and female symbolism.

Marco Benedetti Tarot
by Marco Benedetti, Self-Published. 2014.
In 1994 Marco Benedetti created a set of tarot images. The major arcana were set on a background of gold leaf with silver leaf also applied to some of the images. These were not printed at the time, but in 2014 he issued these as the Marco Benedetti Tarot. He reduces each figure to a series of simple beautifully drawn curves colouring them sparely with block colour with no modelling. The figures have no facial features. This abstraction seems to heighten their archetypal nature. His designs reflect the Art Deco style. This is a full 78 card deck with non-emblematic pip cards and has a rather cool, detached yet archetypal set of images.
78 cards 120x79mm.
