Marco's Comments:
The second more important book on card magic in Italian after Rossetti's one. This one is aimed more to lay audiences and has a large section on self-working tricks. It is the first Italian book explaining the double lift and the explanation of the various techniques is simply appalling (like: "put the cards behind your back")! No wonder that Italian card magic from the sixties to Desideri's "Trattato di Tecnica Cartomagica" was very poor.
