Futurismo Numero 2
Futurismo Numero 2, by Osvaldo Menegazzi
- Limited Edition, Hand-Crafted Deck & Box Set Signed & Numbered by the Artist, 2010
It may be known that Osvaldo Menegazzi created the original art and deck set known as 22 Arcani Futuristi in 2009 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Futurist Movement (founded in Italy), but what may come as a shock is that the original artworks of that deck were stolen! Undaunted, our master craftsman gathered his tools and art supplies and set to work to create a new version of 22 Arcani Futuristi which is called, Futurismo Numero 2. This page showcases this newer set. Futurismo Numero 2 is also a deck of brightly colored symbols, in keeping with the spirit of the Futurist art movement, and the designs are based on 22 new Major Arcana created by Osvaldo. The artwork for each card is mounted on thick cardstock with a dark brown paper wrapping around to the front of the cards and folded down at each corner, giving it a classy, antique look. The matching hand-crafted box is also a treasure to behold. Each box is made by Osvaldo and uniquely different from the rest while displaying imagery from the deck along with a handwritten title, the shop's logo and Osvaldo's signature hot wax seal.
