Studio su La Forzatura Classica

(A study on the Classic Force – in Italian only)

Carte e Monete
This pamphlet deals with one of the most difficult but important techniques in card magic.
Difficult because it is not the result of proficiency in sleight of hand only but, as the author points out, it is “a living, active technique, which requires to set a relationship with another person”.
Therefore, to make it work the performer needs to reach a skilful balance among manipulative skill, inner attitude, ability to manage and deal with difficult and, sometimes, antagonist spectators, which requires an intriguing mix of perspicacity, shrewdness, subtleties and, not least, the outs for the inevitable mistakes that sooner or later are going to occur.

Aurelio Paviato, a professional magician, retraces in this work the many strategies, advices and ruses that have appeared on this subject from 1584 up to the present days, offering the passionate reader a precious range of information and different points of view on the subject.
