The cards are big (4  x 5 1/2 inches). The name on the Major Arcana and the suit names of the Minors are in Italian. The court cards are named Queen, King, God, and Goddess. The minors from Ace to Ten are not  illustrated other then the corresponding number of birds to the number of the card. Each each suit is assigned to a particular type of bird. The associations are as follows:

North - Earth - Wren - Coins (Denari)
South - Fire - Skylark - Wands (Bastoni)
East - Air - Seagull - Swords (Spade)
West - Water - Kingfisher - Cups (Coppe)

There are some prominent humans pictured (Johnny Depp/Magician, Liz Taylor/Queen of Cups, Pavarotti/Hierophant...). The card back is reversible in blue with a diamond shape in the center. It comes in a  well constructed box with a metallic closure and is hinged on each side by white ribbon.
