Marco's Comments:
A nice Italian translation of Robert-Houdin's "Confidences d'un Prestidigitateur", commented and elaborated upon. It is a nice book and a worth effort to translate it in Italian and to elaborate on it. It has some mistakes, though (mentions of Chefalo as a "Circus Magician" of the 19th Century, together with Carmo and Kio!). The author is quite bitter towards Vanni Bossi, who had the manuscript for 4 years but did not revised it.
