Il Tarocco di Colombo was published by Italcards, Bologna (Italy) in 1991. The cards are designed by Americo Folchi who must have a thing for travelling as several of the decks designed by him show images of faraway places or mysterious places.
The beautifully designed cards of Il Tarocco di Colombo show images of the travels of Columbus. These images show the fear as well as the curiosity of the sailors of those days and the way Columbus sought to overcome the myths surrounding the New World, the barriers between man and the Ocean, the Atlantic abyss, almost monstrous in its boundlessness.
