The Visconti Sforza Tarot deck is the oldest known Tarot deck. It was created around 1492 by Bonifacio Bembo, but it is likely that not all cards came from his hands due to his young age at the time. It is believed that some of the cards are made by the artist Antonio Cicognara. The occasion was a marriage between members of two Milanese families: Visconti and Sforza. It can be said that because of that event, the origins of the Tarot ‘game’ are Italian.
