GIACOMO BERTINI'S SYSTEM FOR AMAZEMENT
Within the inner circle of advanced coin magic, the work of Giacomo Bertini has been known and respected for years. The depth and breadth of his work, though, has not been recognized for what it is: a radical new system and theory of coin methodology, one that leads to a fresh paradigm in the art of magic with coins. Few indeed can claim a body of sleights with coins so innovative and capable of wide application that it constitutes a system on which both classic effects can be redesigned and new ones founded.
He has been invited to the World Magic Seminar as lecturer, and to Fechter’s Finger Flicking Frolic, the famous invitation-only magic convention. His original magic is published in some of the most important magic magazines, such as “Genii”, “Magic”, “Ars Magna” as well as several others.

Giacomo is also the president of the european Close-up Magic Symposium since the first edition of 2010 (Coin Magic Symposium) until today.
Giacomo is specialized in Close-Up Magic and he is the best known for his revolutionary new coin technique. He became interested in the magic at the age of eight, and later discovered coin magic. Due to his passion, he studied and developed a personal technique and a completely new style in the coin magic, making Giacomo one of the original and innovative magicians in the world. His approach and his vision of coin magic is completely different, and in the next few years he will be continuing to teach his technique in many parts of world.
