Message from the Designer – Lorenzo Gaggiotti
I am Italian and in my childhood I basically used only 2 kind of decks: the standard 54 cards deck especially for a family game called – in italian – Scala40, and a regional one called Le Piacentine. This one was the “summer-deck” and the “Christmas deck”: a regional Italian deck with 4 suites (swords, sticks, coins and cups) counting 40 cards in total. I´ve been always fascinated by those illustrations, and a couple of years ago I decided to make my very first deck of playing cards.
