Antonio Romero – Penguin Live Lecture (January 14th, 2018)
“Antonio Romero is a special case. Magicians like that, with a star on their forehead, are very few and far between. His magic is, and of all, precious. Precious in the conception of the tricks, with strong doses of originality, which make for a very sophisticated construction. Much talent is needed for so much.” – Arturo De Ascanio
“Antonio Romero’s magic is intelligent, original and entertaining. Only few have that over-abundance of talent that is the hallmark of his magic. Add to this his influence from the Spanish School of Thought, having been one of Ascanio’s close friends, as well as his background in engineering and marketing, plus the experience as an international professional performer, and you get a unique inventor, performer and lecturer. His routine with the transparent Cups & Balls is a thing of sheer beauty and superior to anything I’ve seen or know in that genre.” – Roberto Giobbi
“What can I say of Antonio? Everything comes up with is a stroke of genius. His magic is fresh, original and with a bomb-proof structure.” – Hector Mancha
“In Antonio’s quality products and inventions every problem has been solved for you. Every detail has been passionately researched and worked out. One of the finest magic inventors of our time.” – Rafael Benatar
“It’s really difficult to find something new, amazing, that still reminisces of the great, classic secrets and manages to make your magic new as much as it makes it better. Antonio has found such a thing.”– Miguel Ángel Gea
“Antonio Romero’s creativity is a wealth of fantasy. His magic is full of truly impossible effects.”– Anthony Blake
