The Piedmont pattern is a very close relative to the French 'Paris' pattern. The courts are not named, however, and are divided horizontally (rather than diagonally).
The origins of the Lombardy pattern probably lie in the early 19th century when it was a full-length design. It has some affinities with the French Provence and Lyons patterns which are now obsolete. The pack has never had indices.
The double-ended version of the Venetian pattern originated in the early 19th century.
Originally one of several designs which emerged during the nineteenth century, the Florentine pattern has several distinctive features.
Small Tuscan Pattern
The Brescia pattern contains elements which come from a past age. Some of the characteristic features are the Cupid on the Ace of Cups, the linked 2 of coins, the old-fashioned batons forming a trellis and the curved swords.
The Sicilian pack has a similar composition to the Neapolitan pack, and is small and squat in appearance. Each court rank stands on a different coloured plot - the kings on green, the knights on yellow and the pages on red.
