Kingdom of playing cards

I have always been fascinated by the illustrations of Italian playing cards, in particular the “Neapolitan cards”, for centuries spread in Bel Paese, commonly used especially in the South. Intrigued by the esoteric and aesthetic value of this particular artifact, I decided to rework these illustrations graphically, proposing a more simplified and modern version, seeking a graphic solution which refers to the original illustrations of the fifteenth century and simultaneously fostering new impressions.
