Piedmont Tarot Card Deck
For enthusiasts of tarot—the card game that originated in Italy during the mid-15th century—this Piedmont Tarot Card Deck is a coveted collector’s item among tarot connoisseurs. This set of 78 cards, also known as Tarocco Piemontese, is based on one of the most ancient decks that was designed in Northern Italy’s Piedmont region. The Piedmont Tarot Deck consists of a trump suit of 22 cards, numbered from 0 to 21, and four 14-card suits of swords (spade), batons (bastoni), cups (coppe), and coins (denari). The traditional format uses Italian inscriptions and Arabic numerals on the trumps. Piedmont Tarot Cards can be used to play popular card games and also for divinatory tarot readings.
The Piedmont Tarot Card Deck is made by Modiano, a historical company founded in 1868 and based in Trieste, Italy, the first city in Italy authorized to print playing cards.
