stelle scopa

i came across a magical looking deck of cards called “stelle scopa”. they came with a zine explaing their usage, history, and relationship to their creator. i was swept away (pun intended) by the scopa deck (scopa means “broom” in italian) as well as the history of the deck.

you can read more about maria molteni and her magical deck of cards here:

if you get a chance to play with them or perform cartomancy, i highly recommend it - there is something obviously magical about the deck, as an object.

one of the uses of the deck is to play the traditional card game scopa - which dates back to the 18th century. scopa, as a game, is a simple and relaxing card game.
