Inferno Playing Cards
Dante Alighieri is the most prominent Italian poet and "La Divina Commedia" (the Divine Comedy) is his masterpiece. It represents his vision of the afterlife which is divided into three realms: Inferno (hell), Purgatorio (purgatory) and Paradiso (heaven).
Dite is the city in hell where sinners are punished with flames and extreme temperatures. The tuck case and the back of the cards were designed with red glowing colors and foil. The center of the back is a circle containing twisted flames, with the famous quote: “Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch’entrate” (Abandon all hope, you who enter here).
Cocito is the frozen lake at the bottom of Dante’s Inferno, where he puts the worst possible sinners for his ethics: the traitors.
