gift and information of  Domenico Starna (Roma):
Deck found in the collection of the Museo Fournier de Naipes (Fournier Playing Cards Museum) in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain.
They were used in card games in Florence, Italy. In the 4 Coins it is written: CARTE FINE AL LEONE
(carte fine, quality cards), in 3 Cups: CARTE FINE IN BOLOGNA. In the strongest triumph,
The Trumpets, it is painted a view of the city of Bologna with the towers. In the triumph
XXVII there is a stamp, repeated twice, FUORI PER LE CASE (out for the houses).
In the backs it is written AL MONDO (At the World), it is another brand as Al Leone.
The strongest triumphs, XXXIII and following, have a red background.
See a very similar deck Minchiate by the factory Al Mondo of Bologna:
http://www.endebrock.de/coll/pages/i31.html
The cards are similar to the Minchiate of 1725 with simpler and modern drawings;
the Triumph 2, or Pope 2, has a feminine picture, The Empress.
See WWPCM05115 (1725) with other information (Names of the Triumphs) and WWPCM05113 (1820) with leaflet.
