In Roberto Giobbi's Genii Session article in the September 2005 issue, he made mention that if he has enough solicitations, he will elaborate on his interpretation of the commonly quoted Robert-Houdin quote of magicians are actors playing the part of magicians. He says, "I'll tell you in advance that I think it is a gross misinterpretation of an intelligent thought."
This is a rather intriguing statement to me and I would enjoy hearing Mr. Giobbi's elaboration on this subject. If you would too, please add your solicitation to the Genii powers that be by adding your comment to this topic. Then, perhaps we will read about it in a future issue.
