ANCA & LUCCA
The Mind-Reading Revolution.
The married couple, Anca & Lucca, are second to none. After studying magicians and self-proclaimed #mediums, they started to develop their own methods for their demonstrations of mind-reading, #clairvoyance and #premonition.
With their signature act The Mind-Reading Revolution they’ve already become Vice-World Champions in 2015 and 2018 and European Champions in 2017. In 2019 Anca and Lucca received the O.E.D.M. Nostradamus d’Or for Europe’s Best #Mentalist.
No simple explanations.
Using little more than their awareness, sharpened perception and power of their mind, no simple explanations could be given. Their vow not to use cheap tricks such as prearrangements, actors, or hidden electronic communication devices makes it hard to believe their claim of not having #supernatural powers.
ALBERTO GIORGI AND LAURA
In 2018 they won the first prize of L’Oracolo d’oro in Valladolid (Spain) at the Calderon theater. One of the most important prizes in the world of #illusionism.

They were part of the cast of “The illusionists 1903” one of the most important productions in the world of illusionism. Broadway collection record and still the best-selling magic production on the planet.
Their uniqueness has led them to win the most coveted awards internationally.
Among the most important were:
– The “Mandrake d’or” won in Paris in 2008;
– The second place at Shanghai’s 2009 Magic festival;

The numerous prizes and their continuous national and foreign television appearances which have characterized their career, combined with an intense stylistic work on their act have brought them to develop a distinctive and very personal magical universe with fantastic machines inspired by the imagination of Jules Verne and G.H.
