This latest deck from the "Museo dei tarocchi" arrived Friday.

It's a deck by prolific artist Morena Poltronieri (Tarocco Balocco, … and contributions to other decks) and Ernesto Fazioli who also collaborated to some of the Museo's decks)


here are some images from my fotothing:

This Masonic tarot seems to be an artist's view on masonic symbolism. The two other well known masonic decks are the Square and Compasses by a masonic insider W  Bro Colin Browne, and the Masonic Tarot by Jean Bouchard who takes an esoteric and symbolic approach.

The Tarocchi Massonici by Morena Poltronieri appears to take an entirely aesthetic approach, as she collages material together for artistic reasons, without necessarily adopting an underlying symbolic scheme. Thus she uses images of masonic tracing boards, and engravings, set against images from various artworks. These are truly art tarots as the cards are large 6 x 4 inches (150 x 105 mm), and printed on the facing surface only.
