Tarocchi Sola Busca XV sec. 

Osvaldo Menegazzi was granted exclusive rights 
to reprint the deck directly from the original cards 

Size: Same as original cards (144 x 78 mm.) 5.7 x 3 inches, 14.5 x 7.5 cm. 

Cardstock: Like the original Text in Italian, 

By meticulously recreating this deck Osvaldo Menegazzi hopes to give the Tarot historian, researcher and collector an authentic experience both tactually and visually. The size, cardstock, coloring and even the back of the cards are remarkably similar to the deck created in 1491 during the Italian Renaissance. 
il Meneghello was granted the sole permission to reprint this deck directly from the original cards by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and Pinacoteca di Brera (where it is housed) and that makes this version unique in the world.

It is important to note that Sola Busca does not follow the same card meanings as traditional Major Arcana Tarot. Most of the Trumps are inspired by Roman mythology with a couple of cards based on biblical sources. Each card has alchemical symbology, numismatics, and classical historical references.

This deck is considered the oldest complete 78 card deck of the Renaissance era,. Sola Busca is also the oldest deck in which imaginative scenes grace each card (not only the Major Arcana but also the pip or ‘numbered’ cards) and it is believed Pamela Coleman Smith studied it while creating the Waite-Smith Tarot cards for Arthur Edward Waite (centuries later, around 1909.)
