Description
Un progetto costruito attorno alla figura immaginaria di un leggendario Alchimista: un misterioso libro* un enigma* un mazzo di Tarocchi. Una storia che si snoda tra finzione e realtà* tra filosofia e immaginario* attraverso i simboli* le icone e la magia dei Tarocchi.

The project revolves around the works of a fictional Alchemist: a mysterious manuscript and a deck of Tarot cards, both coded with a complex cipher. Inspired from Leonardo da Vinci's codes, the Voynich Manuscript alongside with the oldest surviving decks of tarot cards, the decks is full of symbols, allegorical images and esoteric languages, echoing a sense of magic and mystery typical of a time where ancient myths and new ideas were fused.
