Description
 

Osvaldo Menegazzi's exquisite reproduction of Carlo Dellarocca's 1835 Tarot deck known as the Soprafino (very refined). A trendsetter in its time in the first half of the 19th century, it set the standard for later Italian Tarot decks much like the Waite-Smith deck revolutionized the 20th century Tarot tradition. This edition from Meneghello is a superior printing on a quality card stock. Originally published in 1835 by Gummpenberg, engraved by Dellarocca.

Packaged in one of Meneghello's lovely two part boxes with a card from the deck displayed on top with the customary Meneghello wax seal. This reproduction deck was first produced in 1992 and now in 2018 a new second edition has been published.

A complete deck includes 78 Tarot cards and a title card which bears the number of the limited edition. A small leaflet with some basic historical information in English and Italian is included.
The 2018 edition title card has engraving used on the original packaging with the figures of Fortune and Mercury. Below them a view of Milan with the Duomo Cathedral. At bottom is the caption
“Dellarocca incisore.”
