Luca almost stumbled upon magic by chance, at age 14; in a very short time he found himself working with illusionists and stage artists of consolidated experience, coming from all over the world. At the age of 17 he was crowned 2010 ‘Italian Champion of Magic’, defeating competitors with a visually impressive number and excellent technical levels: transformation, manipulation of cards and balls, appearances of doves, original music, acting and a great finale. The story of his exhibition is simple: a boy in his room magically transforms and makes everything possible.
In the summer of 2010 he took part, with international performers, in the “Brachetti & Friends” tour, directed by Arturo Brachetti and taking the most important Italian squares by storm, gathering an audience of 50.000 people in Piazza del Duomo, during the Ambrosian Carnival in Milan, for the final show.
In 2012 Luca was one of the youngest participants ever at the World Magic Championship in Blackpool (UK), where he achieved an excellent placement. In October of the same year Luca was awarded, in Paris, the prestigious ‘Mandrake d’or’, the “Academy Award” of illusionism, assigned to the best performers of the year evaluated and selected around the world.
Also in that autumn Luca was invited to France to take part in the prestigious TV show “Le plus grand cabaret du monde”, a veritablepoint of pride for any artist. At the end of his primetime performance (followed by 5 million viewers) the audience called him back on stage to give him a standing ovation.
Often a guest of television broadcasts, in 2013 Luca was one of the protagonists of “La grande magia – The illusionist”, a talent show competition pitting thirty-six illusionists from all over the world, aged 13 to 28, against each other. Luca was the only Italian to reach the final.
His discovery of magic was unusual: after an accident during a Go-kart Championship, Luca was bed ridden in a hospital. His older brother Davide, impassioned magician, entertained him with some tricks… Hence the “contagion”, the discovery of the Magic Circle in Turin, the meeting with Arturo Brachetti and the great artistic awards that followed.
