Tarocco Della Rocca
Tarocco Della Rocca was originally published by the famous printer, Ferdinando Gumppenberg in the historically Tarot rich city of Milan in 1830. It is a beautiful B&W, 78-card Tarot deck of detailed penciled drawings by the artist, C. Della Rocca. This is a quality reproduction by Il Meneghello (also of Milan) in a limited, numbered edition of 350 copies, printed on sturdy cardstock. Card dimensions: 4.92 x 2.56 inches, 12.5 x 6.5 cm.
According to the publisher Osvaldo Menegazzi of Il Meneghello, Ferdinando Gumppenberg is one of the greatest innovators and inventors; ingenious in the field of playing card production during the 19th century. When he arrived in Milan in 1809 from Munich, he brought German technology along with a trunk full of experience to share with Italy. He had studied with J. Fetscher and also brought with him the news, taste, fashion and trends that were of contemporary Germany and Austria during the 2nd half of the 1700's.
