Coin Magic

In coin magic, the most important thing is taking away every bit of attention from the hands, giving every movement the less weight possible, concentrating on believing that what should be impossible is really happening. A coin incredibly disappears or appears from nowhere. Or with a simple “click”, a coin multiplies while everybody is keeping the breath.

That’s coin magic. All eyes are fixed on what’s happening, without understanding how. And that’s what I dedicated my magic studies to. Trying  to create a system of sleights  based on a totally new approach.

Now,  all my work has been collected in a book. You will find my coin magic system presented in classic and new routines with a totally new look!


Online Lessons

I do believe that for a magician the most important thing, besides growing artistically to improve himself, is the teaching of his art. And if there is no teaching, there is not even the advancement of art.
Thanks to the progress of internet, I am finally available for private ONLINE LESSONS from my home, for individuals or small groups of people, with a lot of unpublished materials. The lessons are carried out professionally on ZOOM, online and live with webcams on different angles, for perfect, easy and complete learning. Furthermore, you will then have the video recording of your personal online lesson, recorded live with me, with my proven method that no dvd or other video can offer you.

Dane Certificate
Giacomo is a genius!

"Giacomo is helping me to understand the true details of coin magic, and it’s an honour to be his student. I look forward to our lesson each week; to have the opportunity to have a one to one online lesson with the creator of an ingenious system of amazement is priceless.”

Paolo Vitullo
He has personal techniques that are so innovative and practically useful

If I tell you that, due to age and the wear and tear of cartilages and traumas accumulated by the right hand, I had to operate only with the left, while after having studied Bertini's method I can do the classic palm with the right (think that I'm not left-handed, I had to learn everything the other way round) with his particular way... I mean, do you know what that means? Classic palm with both hands, one of the most used and deceptive palms ever... that Bertini always integrates with Malini Subtly.

Giacomo is a true Maestro!

"I am 16 years old and I live in Siena (Italy), and in this period of lock-down I finished his basic online course, and I started the advanced online course. But I can say that I have already reached a high coinmagic approach. Giacomo is a true Maestro, who manages to transmit you all the secrets of his magic.

Damian Schillaci
Innovative, deceptive, and truly magical!

" My online lessons with Giacomo have improved my coin magic more than I thought possible. Giacomo's system is innovative, very deceptive, and truly magical. Giacomo is a master of the art that we all love, and what better way to study, than with the master. If you like coin magic, you can do no better than to study with the wonderful Giacomo! "

It is named after my origin, Florence, as it is my version of "The Coin Assembly".
Three lessons (2 hours each) are required, and I explain all details of the routine.

only a place to hide

My version of the "Cylinder and Coins". It's not easy, but the sequence of magical effects is worth the effort.

The routine is called "Here, Gone and Back Again", and I use my original style of the Retention Vanish. The sequence of fluid movement will fool the audience.
