What is the Mantegna Tarot?
It is quite entertaining to think that the so called “Mantegna Tarot” was not made by Mantegna, nor was it a tarot. With its directness and interactivity, it is a key in unveiling the wisdom of the Italian Renaissance, and making it applicable to our contemporary times in a direct manner
The Mantegna Tarot is based on 50 engravings, numbered from 1 to 50 and labelled from A to E (S, in another edition). Designed in Italy during the 15th century, influenced by the art of the Estensi Court in Ferrara, these engravings were copied and spread across Europe.
