Hadn't noticed it myself vinny. However, they do stereotypically have a romantic and passionate streak about them - good magical qualities.

Most importantly, they use their hands a lot when speaking - great for misdirection.

Randy the most used gesture with the hands of course is the Italian Salute.

Vinny-- Is it possible that these Magician's and all of us here at the Café are in fact all from Italy?

I'm thinking it is more coincidence, than for any other reason, Vinny.

Growing up I knew a fellow we called "Spaghetti Freddy". He had a sister "Ellie" Poncherelli. The italian names were more rhyming, as you can see.

Hi Hĺkan.
Maybe, but if it is then that originates from when Henry v invaded France.
If you don't know the story let me know.
By the way where in Sweden are you.

Maybe it's something to do with the fact that Houdini sounds Italian, even though it isn't?
