On each tablet, Zaini Milano has faithfully reproduced the miniatures that in the middle of Four hundred, Filippo Maria Visconti, Duke of Milan and his successor Francesco Sforza they commissioned several artists to make the first Tarot deck, 78 cards that inspired subsequent decks. Real works of art to taste.

The meticulous Research of Backpacks for the history of the Tarot of 1400 is also reflected in the choice of colors used for the reproduction of the images, in fact, for the first time gold paste was used to highlight the miniatures present on the packages. L'gold, an element dear to the Tarot, not for its preciousness but for its meaning. It has always been identified with the light, the deepest one that leads to knowledge and wisdom.

Not only that, Zaini Milano wanted to flavor its chocolates with spices, another element dear to the Visconti Sforza era. From the last years of the 15th century, supplies of spices arrived in Milan, rarities from far away. Presented by the apothecaries, merchants specialized in their marketing, they were highly appreciated in the Courts, especially in the rich Court of the Visconti Sforza, where the apothecaries were now at home.
