The Tarot Garden in Tuscany

Just back from a workshop near Milan on the Tarot. Afterwards we traveled down to Tuscany to visit the extraordinary Tarot Garden of Nikki de St.Phalle.
Just heard that an earthquake struck in northern Italy last night – its epicentre east of Milan in Modena. Let’s now hope there will be no after-shocks. Here are some photographs of the Tarot Garden:

The Tarot Garden also has figures which are not of the Tarot – such as this mirrored statue.

‘The Empress’ – the first figure built in the garden. Nikki de St.Phalle then lived inside her in an interior covered in mirrored shards of tiles.


  1. Its like a tarot amusement park! Looks like so much fun! I want to go too

  2. You’re such a lucky guy, I ‘m dreaming for several years on visiting that place, this enormous garden in many senses….

  3. I visited it a few years back, it was a great experience!
